Violence against media rises

Croatia may be a “free” country and a member of the EU, but attacks and threats against journalists remain a serious concern

A worrying escalation of attacks on the media in Croatia has been recorded by the Index’s Mapping Media Freedom project in the last three months. Since September 1 there have been 13 attacks, compared with 3 in the same period last year.

As part of Index on Censorship’s work on art and offence, Index has published a series of law packs intended to address questions about legal limits related to free expression and the arts.

Index publishes censored writers and artists, monitors and campaigns against censorship, and encourages debate.

We rely on donations from readers and supporters. By donating to Index you help us to protect freedom of expression and to support those who are denied that right.
