20 Years After the Kosovo Conflict, JICA’s Support for Media Shows the Future of Interethnic Collaboration

This year marks 20 years since the end of the Kosovo Conflict, a conflict that saw fierce ethnic strife*1. While tensions between Albanians and Serbs in Kosovo continue to this day, JICA is supporting Kosovo's public broadcaster Radio Television of Kosovo (RTK) in the production and broadcasting of information programs jointly produced by a multi-ethnic team to foster interethnic collaboration. The team has taken up more sensitive topics such as politics and economics and an informational program called "UMAMI," whose name is derived from the Japanese word for savory taste, umami, is being broadcast.
