A study by the School of Political Science (FPN) of the Belgrade University has found that almost 60 percent of journalists in Serbia live in fear of losing their job. 20 percent would leave journalism if a suitable opportunity arises.

Miroljub Radojkovic, a professor at FPN, said the study  portrays an average journalist as a “person who works a lot and at irregular hours, is underpaid or has irregular income, is stressed, worried about his/her future and exposed to pressure”

The study leans on a survey of 260 journalists and 50 owners in Serbia.
