Prior to this, programme participants visited project partners and had the opportunity to attend the workshops on basics of public policies and objective journalist reporting.
Within the framework of this project, five political analysts have performed their practice in NGO Institute Alternative, while five journalists have done their in portal Vijesti, where they had the chance to work with mentors and get to know the important aspects of work in NGOs and media, as significant actors of social development. Outputs of their internships are ten news articles, produced by students of journalism, as well as five public policy documents, prepared by students of Political Sciences.
