Drawing on the expertise and global footprint of Reuters News, we implement initiatives ranging from the creation of sustainable, independent news platforms to a wide range of skills and editorial programmes. We fund the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University, a global research centre producing the indispensable Digital News Report and publications on the current and future trends in journalism.
This unique mix allows us to provide world-class solutions to pressing needs, helping superb journalism reach the largest possible audience.
We work with partners to make sure that media development is part of wider international development strategies. All our programmes are led by world-class trainers and experts and combine hands-on experience, on-going editorial support, story grants and opportunities for international distribution including over the Reuters News wire.
Training: Hands-on training from Reuters journalists with a focus on producing real stories
Project grants: Funds for specific investigations and cross-border collaborations
Mentoring: Editorial support from idea to publication by Reuters veterans to give stories global resonance
Distribution: Global channels to bring the best journalism to the widest possible audience
Fellowships: Opportunities to broaden horizons through research and exchanges
We set-up and manage independent news agencies by providing infrastructure, training, editorial support and syndication tools; helping them to become sustainable and commercially viable news services.
In that time the world has changed dramatically as geo-political boundaries have shifted, economies have swelled and dwindled, and populations have adapted to modern environmental, economic and social realities.
The importance of the news media in reporting these changes has never been more essential, yet the challenges they face are changing all the time too. We help journalists and newsrooms to tackle these issues, wherever they are from.
Our projects vary in scope and scale, from assisting journalists in Zambia or the Philippines to cover national elections, helping Congolese or Jordanian journalists take impactful photographs, or investigating the governance of international aid. We also run regional schemes that work with journalists across a whole continent, such as our Wealth of Nations project in Africa, or the Perspektivy programme in Russian speaking countries.
The Institute aims to serve as the leading forum for engagement between scholars and the practitioners of journalism. It is anchored in the recognition of the key role of independent media in open societies and the power of information in the modern world.
Core Institute activities include the Journalism Fellowship Programme which brings high calibre mid-career journalists to Oxford offering them a period of reflection and the opportunity to carry out media-based research and publish their findings.
