About BIRD Community

We designed BIRD Community to create a space where our alumni and journalists reporting on Southeastern and Central Europe can meet colleagues from different countries and interact to exchange ideas, data and information, collaborate on existing projects, or start new ones.

The idea was a result of more than 15 years of BIRN’s experience in connecting journalists across the Balkans and beyond to produce complex regional analyses and cross-border investigations, as well as its experience in providing comprehensive training in investigative reporting.

Bulletin Board

Post a note on our bulletin board and let other community members know what you need: advice from a colleague, travel information, accommodations, a fixer or translator.


BIRD Directory serves as a database of contacts of experts in different fields from six Balkans countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia.


Listed members of the CODE4SEE network will assist journalists with time and expertise. Their engagement is on a voluntary basis, aiming to support stories that are in the public interest. CODE4SEE network members will contribute pro bono, although in exceptional cases journalists might be asked to pay small fees.
