Serbian Daily Politika Accused of Misogyny PDF Print

Published: 21 July 2017

Country: Serbia

PolitikaTwo women have been killed by their partners in the premises of the Serbian Social Welfare Centre. The brutality of these murders shocked the Serbian public, especially because these women were killed in an institution which supposedly offered a safe environment for victims of domestic violence. Most of the media in Serbia have been reporting on this incident for several days. However, only a few media outlets questioned the failure of Serbian society and its social services in protecting victims of domestic violence, most of whom are women.

Following this tragic event, one of the most prominent Serbian newspapers, Politika, which advertises itself as 'the oldest newspaper in the Balkans', published a fake interview with a fake expert relativising violence against women.

 
Dr Puhalo for MDI: “Salafis as Scapegoats in the Bosnian Media” PDF Print

Published: 13 July 2017

Country: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Salafi_Bosnia“He has grown a beard, he has trimmed his trousers. He must be a sleeper terrorist just waiting to take action.” This inaccurate, malicious and stereotypical image about members of the Salafi movement has been widespread in the media in Bosnia and Herzegovina. That is a conclusion of Dr Srdjan Puhalo, a social psychologist who, unlike many reporters and journalists writing about Salafis, spent some time with the members of Salafi movement in order to get his facts straight.

After spending two months with members of the Salafi movement in Bosnia, Dr Puhalo published a detailed study “Salafis in Bosnia and Hercegovina” dedicating one part to the media portrayal of Salafis in Bosnia. “They are not terrorists. They are not strange or deviant. They have a specific way of living and they have their own understanding of Islam. Also, they are not a homogenous group as many Bosnian media portray them,” said Dr Puhalo in an interview with the Media Diversity Institute (MDI).

In this study journalists from 17 countries have examined the quality of migration media coverage in 2015/16 from a national perspective.
