"It is a simple fact that it is hard to find reliable information on
the media in South Eastern Europe. The 'Sotuh East Europe Media
Handbook' bridges this gap in a unique way and offers basic information
about the situation of the media in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Romania,
Serbia and Montenegro/Kosovo, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine. It
hereby supports the better understanding of the particular situation of
the media in the countries of South Eastern Europe. On the other hand,
it gives a very good overview and provides a useful database of all
important media in South Eastern Europe. Last but not least it is an
outstanding source of information regarding press freedom violations in
the past year. Once again I want to emphasize that the media are the
agents of democracy. Hence it is very important to encourage the
governments in the region to establish safe working conditions for
journalists and this is one of the basic objectives of this handbook."
