Strengthening Independent Media in Bosnia

Since the end of the Bosnia War and the signing of the Dayton Peace Agreement in 1995, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s media sector has made significant progress towards independence and professionalism, supported by a substantial influx of financial and technical assistance from the international community in the years following the war.

The legacy of the Dayton regime and the continuing political realities of a complex, multi-ethnic society, however, continue to present challenges for policy-makers, regulators and media practitioners, especially as the country works to gain entry into the EU.

The three-year Strengthening Independent Media in Bosnia program, launched in late 2010 and undertaken in partnership with Internews, is working to support the continued professionalism and independence and secure the requirements for regulatory and self-regulatory institutions to comply with EU accession.
