KOSOVA’DA İLETİŞİM: ÇATIŞMA VE ÇATIŞMA SONRASI,
COMMUNICATION IN KOSOVO: FROM CONFLICT TO POSTCONFLICT

Author:

Number of pages : 20-30

Abstract

This paper discuses models of media communications in Kosovo after 1999 when the country was placed under an international civilian and military administration of the United Nations Interim Administration in Kosovo (UNMIK) and NATO-led peacekeeping mission, KFOR. It tends to probe whether the big number of the licensed electronic media outlets in the Albanian, Serbian, Turkish, Bosnian, and Roma language, controlled through the media regulatory promulgated by the international administration, influenced on the free development of journalism and public communications. The paper also treats the effects of the print media regulatory in the case of the Dita newspaper, which was banned after having published an investigative feature story on a suspected war crimes case, under the justifications of spreading hate speech.
