The round table ‘War crimes and the media: the possibility of establishing trust' was held in the Mediacentar Sarajevo on 27 and 28 February. The participants included prominent individuals from the media and non-governmental sectors from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro. The round table also included the BiH screening of the documentary about the destruction of Vukovar entitled 'Posljednji rez' (The Last Cut) and the presentation of the recently finalised report on the media coverage of war crimes trials in all three countries. The round table was organised by the Transitions Online (the Internet magazine for the area of 28 former Communist countries of South-Eastern Europe). This was the first of the three two-day events focusing on war crimes and the media that the Transitions Online have planned for this year.
