The Ethical Journalism Network promotes ethics, good governance and independent regulation of media content. The EJN was formed in 2011 as a unifying professional campaign bringing together owners, editors and media staff to strengthen the craft of journalism. It works across all platforms and supports partnership at national and international level between media, journalism support groups and the public.
The EJN has also created a five point hate speech test, which you can find here. UNESCO encourages radio stations to download and print this poster and keep it up in your newsrooms.
