Remote control 

Ask Spanish mobile journalist, Leonor Suárez, what role mojo plays in the pandemic and she barely pauses for thought. “It's the key to staying on air.”




Journalism without fear

Thousands took to the streets of Peru in November in what was described as the country's worst political crisis in a decade.


2020 vision

It was a year that will be long remembered for a pandemic which cost countless lives, disrupted international travel and trade and dominated news agendas worldwide.

Our 2020 annual review looks at how we were able to help journalists across the globe cover this momentous story responsibly and safely.

At the same time, we were able to honour commitments to deliver all our contracted programmes. The key to this was innovation.

Hidden from view

Every journalist wants to go on a rescue mission. But hidden from view, the human trafficking story is one of the most complex and ethically testing assignments.






Chronicling life in Syria

Photojournalist, Hasan Belal, captures daily domestic scenes in Syria and confronts the challenges wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic.




I especially like how the Journalism Now online courses feature views from a wide range of journalists or media organisations.

Major projects


The migration crisis, post-truth politics, Ukraine conflict, international terrorism, the war in Syria; there has never been a more important time for accurate and balanced news. Since 2016 the Thomson Foundation, supported by the European Union, has been at the heart of the issues, delivering its biggest ever project, the OPEN Media Hub. 

Europe needs to understand more about the real situation of neighbourhood countries.

The Building Media Capacity programme in Sudan has helped to train 500 journalists since its launch. The foundation also mentors 210 selected journalists who pass on their knowledge to colleagues. The project is underpinning a strong, well-educated and informed media which will play a crucial part in building the Sudan of the future.

Being part of the media project has given me a new perspective.

Regional Voices focused on addressing social tensions resulting from the conflict in Ukraine through better, more ethically balanced coverage of the issues that affect those who have been forced to leave their homes, the internally displaced persons (IDPs). Nearly 2,000 regional journalists took part in the project.

Local journalists from IDPs host communities should adhere to ethical norms and standards.
