Journalism & Media International Center

The International Center is a part of the Department of Journalism and media studies (JM) at OsloMet – Oslo Metropolitan University.

JMIC aims to strengthen independent journalism, press freedom and freedom of speech through support for journalist training and public events in collaboration with partners in the global south. JMIC connects journalists and media academics in and between countries, and facilitates exchange of knowledge and experiences for quality journalism.

JMIC cooperates with journalism education institutions, media freedom NGOs and journalist organizations, building on resources and knowledge at Departments of Journalism and Media studies and its vast international and network of resource persons. We work especially with topics such as freedom of speech and media freedom, human rights, and democracy in relation to the journalistic profession. Important fields are journalistic ethics and skills, safety for journalists, access to information, media and gender, media and extremism, media and climate change.
