Bosnia & Herzegovina takes over presidency of the European Audiovisual Observatory in 2012.

Kemal Huseinovic, director general of Bosnia & Herzegovina’s Communications Regulatory Agency, assumes the role of EAO president in the 20th-anniversary year of the Strasbourg-based research body.

Wolfgang Closs, the Observatory’s executive director, recently announced EAO 2012 workshops in Cannes, Sarajevo and Strasbourg.

The Observatory’s Three Year Action Plan (2012-2014) stipulates the “strengthening of the on-line presence of the Observatory through a completely revamped website, the reinforcement of the data collection on on-demand audiovisual services (VoD, catch-up TV, connected TV) and the continuation of extensive reporting on the evolution of audiovisual legislation, in particular on topics related to new technologies.”
