International Media Support

Aim of the organisation

International Media Support (IMS) is a non-profit organisation working to strengthen the capacity of media to reduce conflict, strengthen democracy and facilitate dialogue. IMS envisions peaceful, stable and democratic societies with accountable institutions that are sustained, supported and promoted through strong and effective public interest media in an enabling environment with freedom of expression and access to information. IMS’ mission is to contribute to a vibrant and inclusive civic space where the media induces actions that further human rights, accountability and social, political and cultural change. As part of this, our goal is to have public interest media reach relevant audiences so that they can discuss, share and act on this content, and to have media and civic groups and organisations to collaborate to bring about this change.
