Brejdon Xhavara is a journalist based in Tirana, Albania. My experience in journalism includes a three-year work at Mapo, Standard, Roma and Egyptian Activism, Albanian Radio and Television (RTSH 2) and Informim.al where I initially worked as an intern then as a journalist, giving a great deal of weight civil society in the media. Years of work in these newsrooms have enabled me to create a specific profile in journalism and work with a series of articles (hyperlinks attached) related to minority rights, violations, activism, culture, social issues.
