Commitment to Action

Development of Global Journalism Code of Ethics Standards

Commitment by

Global Exchange

In 2005, the Global Exchange committed to the Global Media Project, which is a two year initiative to develop an international journalism code of ethics standard. The code will be developed by participants in the Global Exchange's training program that will focus on the importance and role of the media in today's global village.
As of 2006, the Global Exchange participated in multiple events in Saudi Arabia and New York, relaying the message of grass roots diplomacy, the role of communication in conflict resolution, and the need to establish a global media literacy and ethics code among the global public.
