Balkans - Reports
The report's authors cover cases that include politicians' reactions to critical articles in the media.
The authors of the report paint a grim picture of the country's media scene.
The report also looked at the process of media privatization in Serbia as well as implementation of the broadcasting law.
Common features of Kosovo journalism are low professional standards, high turnover, economic challenges, an absence of investigative reporting and a silencing of sensitive issues, low wages and the absence of regular contracts, says the report.
The thirtieth monitoring report analyses attacks and threats against journalists and looks at the implementation of new and existing legislation that affects the media.
The twenty-ninth Monitoring Report contains a legal analysis and assessment of the most important occurrences in the media sector in Serbia in December 2011.
The free expression section of the report presents cases of physical attacks on journalists, threats and requests for disclosure of sources of information, and other violations.
According to the findings of the legal monitoring team, the media scene was marked by the media community's anticipation of the adoption of the Media Strategy by the government.
Attacks on journalists and the media continued, as did the failure of the courts to adequately punish the perpetrators of these attacks.
