This guide was compiled by Barents Mediasphere, a two-year Kolarctic ENPI CBC project that ended in December 2014. The purpose of the project was to improve cross-border communication and information flow within the Barents region.

Barents Observer published a report on a survey that mapped out how much interest the journalists working in Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish and Russian Barents regions actually have in cross-border issues [PDF].
