Special projects and other areas of focus

UN Plan of Action

Since its inception in 2012, the UNPA has been the backdrop for IMS’ collaborations with local partners to establish robust national safety mechanisms, which is one of the key priorities for IMS in our work to improve the safety of journalists around the world.

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.
