IFJ Rebuilds Website and Launches New European Site

The International Federation of Journalists this week re-launches it’s website, with updated design, a user-friendly navigation and easier access to non-English content. The rebuild includes the websites for the campaigns Save Public Broadcasting and Authors’ Rights, while a completely new site has been created for the European Federation of Journalists, a regional organization within the IFJ.

The IFJ has chosen a database-driven website, based on a "content management system" created by the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU). The ICFTU supported the development of the IFJ site, which incorporates new, more flexible features, designed especially for the needs of multilingual international trade union organisations. It is hoped that the system will further evolve as an "open-source" project, to be made available to other trade union organisations in the future.

The International Federation of Journalists has had a presence on the Internet since 1996, and from a single page the site has grown into a large collection of resources for journalists and their union representatives. The site, www.ifj.org has several sister sites, for campaigns and for regional offices. The latest addition in the family is the site of the European Federation of Journalists, www.ifj-europe.org, which is being launched this week.
