Good journalism. Better societies.

IMS (International Media Support) pushes for quality journalism, challenges repressive laws and keeps media workers of all genders safe, so that they can do their jobs. Through alliances and innovation, we help free, independent media contribute to positive change and better societies.


Special projects and other areas of focus

IMS in Ukraine

IMS' current Ukraine programme began in 2020 as part of the New Democracy Fund. While IMS' original ambitions had been to strengthen civil society partnerships in Ukraine, the scope of the programme changed dramatically following Russia's invasion in February 2022.

IMS in Afghanistan

IMS has been engaged in Afghanistan since 2001, promoting access to free and independent media alongside the predominant challenge of improving Afghan journalists’ safety. We are continuing to work with our partners to ensure access to information for the Afghan population.

Gender equality

IMS' vision is that everyone, irrespective of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, ability or socio-economic status, can enjoy the right to freedom of expression.
