Global Integrity’s friends at The Center for Investigative Reporting – Bosnia-Herzegovina, have launched a news portal addressing organized crime in the Balkans, in partnership with a host of local muckrakers. The URL is www.reportingproject.net, or read below for background.
CIR/BiH’s Drew Sullivan writes from Sarajevo:
Very quietly we have put up our regional organized crime website. This is part of a joint project of a number of different organizations including the Center for Investigative Reporting in Sarajevo, the Romanian Center for Investigative Reporting, the Bulgarian Investigative Journalism Center, the Caucasus Media Investigative Center, Novaya Gazeta in Moscow, Media Focus in Serbia and reporters and news outlets in another half dozen countries.
It also includes our latest tobacco project which is now mostly online.
It is funded by the UN Democacy Fund but individual projects have been funded and supported by the good folks at SCOOP and Open Society.
We hope to have a one stop site for organized crime and corruption stories and resources for journalists. We hope to expand in the near future and pump out more stories and more resources. Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
