Publishing platform for conflict news (Round 3)

Denmark Project type: prototype International Media Support


IMS is working in more than 40 countries in conflict around the world with building up the capacity of local journalists and we will explore the possibilities for creating a publishing platform and clearing house that can enable this content to reach international media and audience in a fact checked and professional form.

The solution

The European mainstream media have today challenges in travelling in conflict countries because of the danger and because it is expensive. We have been working in more than 15 years with capacity building of the local media in these countries and have in numerous cases shown how the content from these partners actually has reach a quality so they can be shown on international media. We will try to set up a system so this can be organised and secure easy access to the stories as well as a model to generate income to the local partners.
