The safety and protection of journalists is at the heart of the IFJ’s commitment to media freedom.

Working with IFJ affiliates and safety experts we deliver training, advice, support and campaigns to demand international bodies, states and employers take action to protect journalists, fight impunity and enable us to work free from harassment, intimidation and violence.

Our safety fund provides a unique lifeline for journalists facing persecution, threats or in need.
