Extrabudgetary Projects on Freedom of Expression in Bosnia and Herzegovina



Bosnia and Herzegovina

Voluntary contributions have strengthened UNESCO’s work in freedom of expression in Bosnia and Herzegovina.


The primary objective of the European Union’s development policy is the eradication of poverty in the context of sustainable development. EU partnerships and dialogue with developing countries promote respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms, peace, democracy, good governance, and gender equality, the rule of law, solidarity and justice.


UNESCO is leading innovative projects around the world thanks to voluntary contributions it has received from donors in support of freedom of expression.



This project seeks to strengthen freedom of expression, access to information, free, independent and pluralistic media, ensuring that journalists and media in this region are key drivers for democratic, sustainable and peaceful development in the region.





With financial support from the European Union, the project seeks to strengthen ethical and professional standards of media professionals in South East Europe and Turkey.
