Working with Mediacentar Sarajevo, Internews supports the growth of online media outlets and strengthens the ability of local journalists to conduct investigative reporting. In conjunction with the Annenberg School for Global Communication Studies Internews provides opportunities for law students and junior faculty to engage with their international peers at the CEU Summer School and Annenberg-Oxford Summer Institute, to strengthen their research capacities and contribute to current public debate on media policy and freedom of expression.
Through Internews' partnerships with local universities, students are provided with training and internships at web-based news outlets around the country and unique opportunities to participate in SIM-led media law and media literacy clinics. In collaboration with the local NGO Youth Initiative for Human Rights, Internews convenes multiethnic youth from six Balkan nations to develop cross-border projects that promote open dialogue, highlight commonalities and tackle obstacles to reconciliation and tolerance.
