Journalism Trust Initiative

Alex Spillius is a member of the ethics drafting committee on this important initiative to rebuild confidence in the global media industry, launched by Reporters Sans Frontieres and the European Standardisation Committee (CEN). Partners include Agence France Presse, the European Broadcasting Union and the Global Editors Network. The JTI is drafting standards which are designed to reflect transparency of media ownership and revenue sources, as well as journalistic methods and ethical standards and independence. They are intended to become a voluntary, leadingĀ  benchmark of media self-regulation and good practice.
