Juzune Vesti is an independent online media platform in Serbia that aims to fill the current ‘information vacuum’ at the local level by enriching their content with stories from smaller cities within Serbia. The platform will allow rural citizens outside of Belgrade, who are subjected to strong media censorship, to access unbiased information and reporting on political, social and economic issues. To this end, with EED’s support Juzune Vesti will strengthen the capacity of correspondents in smaller municipalities in Serbia to produce content.
