The Ethical Journalism Network is an alliance of reporters, editors and publishers aiming to strengthen journalism around the world. Our supporters represent many different cultures and media traditions, but they share the conviction that the principles of ethical journalism are universal and a precious resource that builds respect for democracy and human rights.

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 is essential to help people better understand the world around them.

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.

The EJN believes that journalism makes a positive difference to 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.
