The Centers for Independent Journalism

The Centers for Independent Journalism in Eastern and Central Europe, and Southeast Asia create and promote programs that are based on international professional standards and ethics.

IJF's goal is to encourage effective, fact-based responsible journalism.

Each Center is fully staffed by nationals. Directors and deputies in each Center have extensive backgrounds as working journalists and professional communicators, and are thoroughly steeped in their country's public affairs and journalism issues. They are responsible for program development, organization of basic journalism training and specialized assistance; recruitment of journalist participants and trainers; and networking worldwide.

IJF has been successful in sending recognized print and electronic journalists, university journalism professors and specialists in marketing, advertising, media law and finance, to teach at the Centers. Initially, visiting trainers were mainly journalists from the U.S. and Western Europe; today, top journalists are recruited locally and join these international training teams.
