On 7th March in Belgrade, Civic Initiatives, with the support of the OSCE Mission in Serbia, organized a roundtable on the current situation in the Serbian media from the perspective of civil society, entitled “Civil Society regarding Media”. This event launched a broad debate on the implementation of the existing media law, the results of the privatization of the media, the work of the institutions and other state organs, and the functioning of the rule of law in Serbia, including the case Tanjug. The general conclusion of this round table is a need for greater involvement of civil society in issues of media freedom, which concerns all the citizens of Serbia, so that the society gets the media it deserves. The debate was attended by representatives of CSOs, as well as journalists and media associations. Although invited, none of the representatives of state institutions attended the roundtable.
