Session

Description

A special TV channel in Serbian language within the public broadcaster in Kosovo was set up as a political condition. Decisions were taken during the period of defining the political status of Kosovo and despite the opposite views of the parties involved: Albanian and Serbian political factors, journalists from both communities and international actors. In 2012, Law on Radio Television of Kosovo, laid up the foundation for RTK2, as an integral part of public media, but with a greater autonomy comparing to other channels. This paper focuses RTK2 editorial policy, by using the discourse analyses as the main method. Paper concludes that the content is oriented toward Serbian minority in Kosovo, but it also reflects the complexity, confusion and the lack of political clarity for Kosovo Serbs, who find themselves in midst of tense relations between Kosovo and Serbia.
