Media and Disability workshops

8 local media workshops took place this year in: Bosnia and Herzegovina (Tuzla, Banja Luka and Sarajevo), Montenegro (Podgorica), Serbia (Nis and Novi Sad) and the UN administered province of Kosovo (Pristina and Gracanica).  The workshops gathered DPO activists and media professionals using the discussion paper "Disability in the press: How disability and people with disabilities are depicted in print media in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia in 2006" as a starting point for finding ways to work together.

The workshops aimed to raise awareness of media professionals on disability from a human rights perspective and to make clear how disability advocates can work more effectively with the media to get their message across. Besides sharing necessary skills and knowledge, the organisers helped create a platform for discussion and networking among DPO activists and media practitioners working in South East Europe. The workshops were organized in cooperation with local partners in the region and with representatives of organizations of people with disabilities that are working on media as a tool for advocacy.

The discussion paper is available in English, Albanian and Serbian. The paper is available to be downloaded here in PDF.
