PLATFORM is an independent, multilingual and multicultural association of journalists from Southeast Europe that was created in 2020. Our key objectives are to:

  • Promote high-quality journalism;
  • Explore and analyse contemporary issues;
  • Encourage journalists from the Balkans to write on topics that promote human rights, gender equality, climate change, culture, architecture, LGBTI rights and other relevant matters.

PLATFORM has successfully developed a multilingual network structure that includes and promotes stories and analyses by independent correspondents from North Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, Denmark, Bulgaria, Germany and Kosovo. By creating space for high-quality journalism from the entire region, PLATFORM is incessantly providing the public with unbiassed and consistent information and encouraging young reporters to explore relevant journalistic matters.

Our editorial board collaborates with several national and international voluntary and statutory organisations that promote media freedom, human rights, rule of law, animal rights, ecology, freedom of speech, gender equality and democratic values.
