Transitions Online (TOL) is a nonprofit organization established to strengthen the professionalism, independence and impact of the news media in the post-communist countries of Europe and the former Soviet Union.
To achieve its goal, TOL runs a variety of programs with two aims: to offer practical journalism training, and to help participants either improve existing media outlets or set up new ones. In addition, TOL publishes Transitions Online internet magazine.
In cooperation with the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs – within the Transition Promotion Program, TOL realizes projects primarily in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in Kosovo and Moldova. Implemented projects have focused for example on investigation of environmental pollution, support of better media coverage on European integration and reform, or education of journalists in law and judges in journalism.
