International Media Partnerships Meeting 2009

This report provides an overview of the discussions and findings from the ‘International Partnership Meeting’ held in Copenhagen in September 2009, as well as the best practices and lessons learnt from organisations engaged in Partnerships over the past years.

Representatives of twenty one international media support and press freedom advocacy organisations met to assess the experiences of working together in Partnerships, and explored ways to further improve collaborative support to media in countries affected by conflict, human insecurity and political transition.

This report has three main parts:

  • The first provides a brief overview of the history, background and rationale for the creation of Partnerships.
  • The second consists of a summary of the discussions held during the meeting in Copenhagen and the experiences and lessons learnt by the participating organisations, with each sub-section highlighting focus areas in terms of lessons learnt and vision for the future.
  • The third section lists potential conclusions, recommendations and follow-ups for further discussion and refinement amongst involved organisations.
