Dunja Mijatović: Resisting the urge to over regulate the media
The trend towards ramping up the regulation of the media has worrying implications.
Dunja Mijatović: Why bother? A quick take on lying on social media
Besides the difficulty in determining truth from opinion to a bald-faced lie, the inherent limiting of ideas, including criminalising them, makes us all suffer a little bit.
Dunja Mijatović: The fight against terror should not be a fight against basic human rights
We know Europeans want something to be terrorism. Living in a perpetual state of fear is not the natural consequence of living in 21st century liberal democracies. But neither is living in a police state.

Dunja Mijatović: Chronicling infringements on internet freedom is a necessary task
As the OSCE Representative on Freedom of Media, I believe that the rights afforded to producers and consumers of traditional media equally apply to new media platforms as well

Dunja Mijatović: There is hope that justice can be served in Serbia

Dunja Mijatovic: We don’t need new laws limiting speech
Each autumn, more than 1,000 government and civil society representatives from 57 countries of the OSCE
Dunja Mijatović: Online threats of killing, rape and violence everyday reality for too many female journalists
No job comes without sacrifices, but how many downgrading comments, criticism or even threats can one person take before it becomes too much?
Dunja Mijatović: The good fight must continue
Media freedom advocates must continue to move forward and provide the defenses necessary for free expression and free media to flourish. Complacency is not an option. Solidarity, however, is.
What does this mean?
