Southeast European Observer: Your Window to Southeast Europe

Who We Are

The Southeast European Observer is a dedicated group blog that bridges the information gap between Southeast Europe and the world. While we are not a news outlet in the traditional sense, we are a group of passionate volunteers with diverse backgrounds in journalism, citizen journalism, communications, public relations, marketing, and international relations. Our team boasts expertise in editing, fact-checking, journalist training, and media development.

Our Mission

Our primary goal is to provide concise, accurate, and contextual summaries of news from 11 countries in Southeast Europe: Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, and Serbia. We parse regional, national, and local news in regional languages, extracting the essence of news stories and presenting them in English for an international audience.

What We Do

We don’t engage in original reporting. Instead, we meticulously follow regional, national, and local media and news outlets from Southeast Europe daily. By summarizing these articles in English, we offer our international readers a distilled version of the news, enriched with context and additional information for clarity.

Our Editorial Integrity

Independence, objectivity, transparency, and impartiality are the cornerstones of our editorial policy. We are committed to upholding the highest journalistic standards. Because we extract information from various, sometimes biased news outlets, every piece we publish undergoes rigorous fact-checking, and we always cite our sources. Our editorial structure, though compact, ensures that every article aligns with our core values. In regards to political or politicized news stories, we strive to provide equal coverage of all relevant news from all political parties and movements in the region. We do not provide or include opinions of our own or our volunteer staff in any of our publications. Read our full editorial policy here.

Ownership and Transparency

The Southeast European Observer is a proud venture of Krazy Fish Media LLC, a privately-held media and marketing company registered in the United States as a non-resident Delaware LLC. Our commitment to transparency is unwavering. While we are owned by a for-profit business entity, our dedication to providing unbiased, clear, and factual news summaries remains paramount.

Join Us on Our Journey

As we navigate the complexities of Southeast European news, we invite you to be a part of our journey. Stay informed, gain insights, contribute, and understand a region that’s rich in history, culture, and current events, all through the lens of the Southeast European Observer.
