About this grant

This grant will enable the International Research & Exchanges Board to provide training for journalists covering domestic war crimes trials across the Western Balkans region. Expanded coverage by local journalists of proceedings in The Hague and in domestic courts will deepen people’s understanding of the wars and conflicts in the region during the 1990s.During 2005-2006, the board supported nine journalists reporting from The Hague. These journalists provided approximately 200 articles and reports on the court proceedings.The board, based in Washington, D.C., has extensive experience supporting free and independent media around the world.
