JiG: Strengthening GBV Reporting Worldwide

About Us

Formulated in 2018 based on the need to strengthen the engagement and capacity of journalists and news media practitioners in reporting on GBV globally, the Initiative consulted over 70 journalists from 35 countries in the development of ideas towards JiG tools. The consultations found an overwhelming demand by journalists across the board for assistance in GBV reporting through best practices, guidelines and networking for peer to peer learning. It also brought to the forefront the importance, among others, of terminology, ethical standards, issue- framing, and selection of sources.
