It is an informal forum for sharing information on journalists in distress and developing joint initiatives for emergency response. It was formed in 2006 to allow international organisations with freedom of expression mandates to more easily discuss specific cases, coordinate joint efforts, and avoid duplication.
JiD's mandate is to:
- Facilitate and provide assistance to media workers, through members, in line with their individual mandates.
- Coordinate joint response to emerging crises that affect journalists safety and media freedom, in line with the mandate of the members and their capacity.
