JMI takes inspiration from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, particularly Article 19, which states: “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”.
The institute’s Code of Ethics reflects the ideals of truth and accuracy, democracy and responsibility, professional integrity and independence, which result in fair and comprehensive accounts of events and issues.
JMI recognizes the crucial role of journalism in promoting democracy, gender issues, deontology, freedom of expression and access to information and knowledge.
On this basis, the institute has developed its policies in various fields:
