The Sustainability of Serbian Broadcast Media in Kosovo (August 2010)


This paper analyzes the landscape of the current Serbian-language broadcast media in Kosovo by employing interview methodology along with third-party research from various international organizations.  I conducted interviews with local media professionals as well as organizational spokespersons in charge of initiatives for Serbian-language media development in Kosovo. The purpose of this paper is to explore whether or not Serbian-language media in Kosovo is capable of sustainable development. I focus specifically on broadcast media, as it is the medium where the majority of funding from the international community is going.  Also according to all of those I interviewed, it is also the journalistic platform with the best chance for viability in the country.
