Project description Project description

The Cooperation project "Promoting Professionalism and Tolerance in the Media in Bosnia and Herzegovina" funded by the voluntary contributions of Ireland and Norway has been successfully accomplished in December 2013. This two years project  aimed at promoting professional and responsible journalism in Bosnia and Herzegovina in line with the Council of Europe standards.

The overall assessment of the project has been very positive and constructive. Monitoring of print, online and broadcast media was carried out between August and December 2012 and presented to the public. A long-term plan for the education and professional training of journalists and editors as regards professionalism and tolerance in their work  has been developed. Overall, the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina became more aware of their rights and encouraged to defend them, using all available self-regulatory and regulatory tools.

Following the decision of the Committee of Ministers on 16 March 2022 the Russian Federation is no longer a member of the Council of Europe. The website will be updated as soon as possible to take account of this development.
