Hans-Jürgen Beerfeltz: Please SAVE the International Institute for Journalism

The International Institute for Journalism is instrumental in improving the quality of journalism practice in developing and transition countries around the world. Many of its alumni who are junior reporters during their IIJ training are now senior officers of their media institutions. Aside from training journalists, the IIJ empowered partner organizations bridging south-south cooperation among media organizations – a huge milestone in international development work.

We believe that the IIJ is an asset and a key pillar in the media development work of the Federal Government of Germany and in particular of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Strengthening the IIJ means further empowering journalists and their crucial role in democracies and social processes, closing it means to cut the thread carefully woven during many years of dedicated work.

Our humble plea to Mr. Hans-Jürgen Beerfeltz is to please save the IIJ.
