Event Title

Reflection on Ideology Confusion of Kosovo’s Political Parties in Media

Session

Journalism, Media and Communication

Description

Kosovo’s political scene has some specifics that have influenced the physiognomy of political configuration. This configuration has had an impact on media coverage. This scene was influenced by the former self-governing socialist system. Socialism dissolution as a “world process” brought political pluralism; nevertheless the impact of monist politics is present today. It was the beginning of the first pluralist set-ups without any experience but with a strong will to oppose, more or less, everything that was build until then. During this process media had, and still has, a key role. Critics regarding the past were elaborated lacking adequate ideological criteria. This in turn created a situation where some political parties’ reflection was criticized by media for their ideological and functional confusion, meanwhile journalists didn’t have professional knowledge. This discrepancy was helped from the consequences of the conflict and imposition of the international factors. Limited political professional and medial capacity, didn’t really explain the system of political ideas.
