EJN Annual report 2018/19:
Ethics and the Fight for the Future of Journalism
Over the last year, the EJN reached far more than the participants through our core activities than ever before.
We carried out 166 programme-related actions (50 more than the same period last year) where the EJN had direct contact with our target groups – journalists and media executives; media academics and students of journalism; policymakers and civil society groups totalling over 7,100 individuals.
Building Quality and Trust in News
Welcome to the Ethical Journalism Network – an alliance of reporters, editors and publishers aiming to strengthen journalism around the world.
We work to build trust in news media through training, education and research because we believe that fact-based communications delivered by well-trained and ethical media professionals are essential to help people better understand the world around them.
Journalism everywhere is under attack. In the face of unscrupulous politics, the scourge of fake news and online hate, and the self-serving spin of public relations, we believe everyone who is committed to truth, honesty and decency in the news should stand up for ethics and for the future of journalism.
Journalism makes a positive difference in people’s lives. It promotes understanding of complex events. It brings people together. It opens the door to dialogue and peace-building. Through quality journalism, people get the facts and information they can trust.
