NEWS ORGANIZATIONS PLAY A 

 KEY ROLE IN 

 THE SAFETY OF JOURNALISTS 

NEWS ORGANIZATIONS SAFETY SELF-ASSESSMENT

 

Developed by the Alliance and key signatories, the News Organizations Safety Self-Assessment provides a tool for news outlets to review and improve their current safety practices and protocols. It helps news organizations to identify and better understand their own weaknesses and strengths when it comes to the security of individuals who are working for them, including freelancers. 

The Self-Assessment is designed to prompt a constructive conversation around safety best practice and encourage practical and effective responses. It can be modified and adapted according to the size and set-up of individual organizations and can also be used to inform existing mechanisms.
