Sarajevo – Media Law & Freedom of Speech


We live in a world that is non stop changing, and it is is very difficult to chase the modern trends. Freedom of speech is a principle that supports the freedom of an individual or a community to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of retaliation, censorship, or legal sanction. Unsolved fates of Khashoggi, Babchenko, Viktoria Marinova, Marie Colvin and all other worldly known journalist led us to think about the future of on of the most basic rights, freedom of speech.

We would like to analyze this topic from a lawyer’s perspective, as well as from the perspective of people who work in the journalism field.
