On 24 September 2016, Partners Serbia and the Media Center of the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad organized the training for students in conducting media monitoring on protection of privacy and presumption of innocence.
A group of nine students will participate in the research that will particularly address the difference in online and offline media reporting. The research will begin in September 2016 and will be conducted until February 2017.
The long term goal of this training is to empower students to respect human rights in their work as future journalists and media professionals, and to support the efforts of media professionals and journalists to enhance implementation of ethical media standards.
The training was organized within the project “Protection of Privacy and Presumption of Innocence in the Media”, implemented by Partners Serbia in cooperation with the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad and the Association of Public Prosecutors and Deputy Public Prosecutors of Serbia, with the support of the Open Society Foundation Serbia.
Lecturers at the training were Jelena Kleut and Dragana Prodanovic (the Faculty of Philosophy, media department), and Ana Toskic and Uros Misljenovic (Partners Serbia).
