Nezavisne novine

Nezavisne novine

Established in Banja Luka in August 1996, the daily national newspaper Nezavisne novine belongs to the Journalistic, Editorial, and Graphics Company (NIGP).

NIGP was originally created to provide an alternative to the limited information offered by state media and a professional platform for journalists eager to practice their work--as well as their rights--properly. The group includes the weekly revija Nezavisne novine (launched in December 1995), the daily dnevne Nezavisne novine, radio NES (launched in June 1997) and the women's magazine Minja (launched in October 2000).

Based in Banja Luka, Nezavisne novine has now opened offices in Mostar and Sarajevo. It employs 136 staff from all three ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The diversity of views and backgrounds among journalists and editors guarantees room for objective and comprehensive coverage of current events and investigations.

Distributed throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina, the daily sells about 11,000 copies, 18,000 for the weekly. Each copy is said to reach eight or nine readers.

We would like to invite you to meet Kathryn Thier, a recognized expert and instructor of Solutions Journalism from the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.


Join us to learn more about the connections between investigative reporting and Solutions Journalism and discover the impact that bringing the “whole” story has on communities. Kathryn’s keynote speech will be followed by a panel discussion on bringing the solutions perspective into reporting practices with Nikita Poljakov, deputy editor in chief of the business daily Hospodářské noviny. Nikita is also head of the project “Nejsi sám” (You are not alone), which uses the solutions approach to tackle the issue of male suicide. The main program will be followed by an informal wine reception. 


The event will take place on Monday, 25 March at 5 p.m. in the Hollar building of the Charles University Faculty of Social Sciences (Smetanovo nábřeží 6, Praha 1). The event will be in English. 


Attendance is free upon registration - please, fill in the registration form.


Feel free to check out and share the event on Facebook.
