Survey: Reporting During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Illustration: BIRN/Igor Vujicic

Journalists in Europe face intimidation, social networks are flooded with disinformation, media lack financial support – we want to hear from media workers about the challenges you are facing while reporting about the pandemic.

Balkan Investigative Reporting Network is currently mapping the challenges that journalists and media workers face due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the countries of Central and Southeastern Europe.

We want to hear your views on the professional, financial and health-related issues that you’re experiencing – and about what kind of short and long-term consequences of this crisis you expect. 

Data collected in this survey will be stored safely, and will only be used for the purpose of BIRN’s article on the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on an already fragile media scene in this region. We respect our sources and will never share your data without your consent.
