Media Relations – Guide for Civil Society Organisations
Civil society organisations (CSOs) have more or less diverse experiences with media and journalists, our various activities, projects and efforts are often ignored, poorly understood or falsely presented. As could be deducted from numerous discussions with various CSOs from Slovenia and the Western Balkan countries, many have similar remarks, complaints and fears about the media. To name only a few: The media don’t care about work and good intentions of CSOs. They just look for sensations. The journalists do not have enough knowledge to cover certain
CSO issues. They often cover our issues in a superficial way, with incomplete information, mistakes and also with a certain political bias.
