Rising Voices note: This post by Sopheap Chak continues our series of blog posts written from the perspective of our grantee projects. This post comes from the Empowering Clogher Project taking place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
Mainstream media in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is highly polarized along ethnic and political lines and often serves to exacerbate already existing ethnic divisions. Media often focus on events related to the war in the 1990s and exploit information to promote ethnic stereotypes and even stir up inter-ethnic tensions.
Rising Voices note: This is the first of monthly blog posts that will be written by each our 2014 grantees. This post is written by David Escalante, one of the coordinators of the South of South project based in Mérida, Mexico.
