Generations: Stories of Social Change in the Balkans is the product of original research of ten journalists selected from South East Europe to participate in 2014 Balkan Fellowship for Journalistic Excellence.
By taking part in the fellowship, these journalists have chosen not just to use their considerable skills but to improve them, to push themselves to their limits, to learn both from their experiences and the feedback of the editorial team.
Taken together, these 10 stories offer a much more vivid and varied portrait of the region than media coverage often provides.
Edited by Andrew Gray
Editorial team: Ana Petruseva, Jeta Xharra, Gordana Igric, Sofia Papadopulo, Albena Shkodrova, Marian Chiriac and Nedjeljko Rudovic

BALKAN FELLOWSHIPFOR JOURNALISTIC EXCELLENCE
This year’s annual topic is Generations. Think of a powerful story that you have always wanted to report, and link it to this theme while crafting your proposal. Remember, it is better to have a strong central idea that is loosely linked to the annual theme than to have a weak idea that is strongly linked to the theme.
