Abstract

Today’s modern lifestyle and contemporary ways of working and gaining knowledge in schools and universities could not be imagined without high technology – the Internet. Simply said, internet entered all the pores of contemporary life in big style. If used rationally, internet can truly facilitate work in all spheres of modern man’s life.

Aid Mršić, Larisa Softić-Gasal – THE RIGHTS OF NATIONAL MINORITIES TO INFORMATION
Full text

Abstract

The public service, which should be the guardian of the identity of national minorities, fell under the political pressure. In this way, it came out of the scope of its actions. Leading people in independent media believe that the role of the public service is crucial in protecting national minorities.But the media can not do it alone. First of all, the state must regulate, and respect what it has brought. With strong strategies and the inclusion of national minorities in all social trends, it is possible to achieve, not fully, but partially, the equality of all those who liveon the territory of BiH. On the other hand, the public service must respect what the state says.

Keywords: media, national minorities, public service, degradation, equality, freedom
