[ Medien | Media ]

Koča Pavlović, Montenegrin journalist and TV editor, will open the final day of our Workshop Emergence3 // Media in CE/SEE since 1945 with two Contributions, a Paper Presentation and a Documentary Film:
  • Newsroom in Crisis
  • War for Peace - Documentary Film
  • Newsroom in Crisis: Media, Democracy, and the Politics of Public Information Service in Montenegro:
    The author analyzes the media landscape and the legislative framework within which the issue of Montenegrin independence is being shaped and debated, and critically approaches the problematic nature of quantity (numerous media outlets) and quality (uniformity in content and discourse) of the local media landscape. He elaborates on the mechanisms of control the ruling elite imposes over the local media. Particular emphases are put on two important aspects such as the limited implementing of the "open sky" policy and the central role the government plays in the process of establishing the public broadcast service in Montenegro, as well as the need for defining parameters of "new journalism" in Montenegro. The author stresses the need for establishing a climate beneficial to developing and practicing of investigative journalism and also argues in favor of providing necessary platforms for critically addressing issues from the past.
  • War for Peace - Documentary Film:
    The 1991 siege of the Croatian coastal city of Dubrovnik by the former Yugoslav Peoples Army (JNA), the units of the Montenegrin Ministry of Interior, and the Montenegrin reservists and volunteers, refocused the attention of the international community to the war in the former Yugoslavia. This episode proved to be the most shameful one in recent Montenegrin history, and it left a permanent black mark on a collective psyche in Montenegro. This film is the first ever account of the ten months long siege, told from a Montenegrin perspective. It is a story about political manipulation, atavistic passions of nationalism, fear, and the lack of understanding. It is also an attempt to critically assess the role Montenegro played in the bloody dissolution of the former Yugoslavia.
