CEN/WS - Journalism Trust Indicators 

The ultimate goal of the ‘Journalism Trust Initiative’ (JTI) of RSF is to support the universal, individual freedom of opinion through access to information and independent, pluralistic media. By safeguarding professional standards, a more healthy digital media landscape should emerge from which each citizen and media worker, but also societies at large could benefit.
The scope of this workshop is to outline the operational details to meet that objective in developing the following CEN Workshop Agreements (CWA):

  • CWA I: Transparency and Disclosure Rules
  • CWA II: Trusted Journalism – Editorial Methods and Safeguards
  • CWA III: Fair Journalism – Editorial Conduct and Society

The original Proposer of the Workshop is Reporter sans frontières - Reporters Without Borders (RSF) who is supported by the following co-Proposers:

  • Global Editors Network (GEN)
  • European Broadcasting Union (EBU), and
  • Agence France Press (AFP)

The consensus outcome of the Workshop will be published as CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement(s) (CWA). The CWA(s) is(are) expected to be finalized by the end of 2019.

The kick-off meeting will be held on 23 May 2018, starting at 10:00 and finishing by 16:00, at AFNOR, 11 Rue Francis de Pressensé, Saint-Denis, France.

All interested parties are welcome to register for participation and submit comments on the draft Project Plan to the Workshop Secretary Mrs Fanny LANNOY, no later than 18 May 2018.
