The bi-lingual series, Media Watch, is based on the project bearing the same name. It focuses on the monitoring and analysis of the mass media in Slovenia. The project was launched at the end of 1997 with the first publication appearing in March 1998. It brings together media researchers, journalists and other individuals concerned with the quality and openness of the media space in Slovenia. The project is open to new initiatives and contributing authors. The starting point for this project was belief that journalism and public speech significantly influence the openness of social spaces and determine the level of control the public has over authorities and other centres of power. The editor of Media Watch series is Brankica Petković.
