Through our projects the IFJ and its affiliates engage with journalist leaders and influence policy makers around the world. They help build the capacity of our affiliates and enable us to raise issues which are key to defending journalists and journalism and to helping unions work in often turbulent media environments.

Projects- funded according to ethical guidelines – are supported by our affiliates, development agencies or international organisations and help provide the resources to implement the IFJ working programme.

Current projects cover issues such as workers’ rights, safety, impunity, press freedom,gender equality and digital media.
