Journalists in Distress (JiD) Network
The Journalists in Distress (JiD) Network is a network of media freedom organisations which provide direct assistance to journalists and media workers who are at risk because of their work.
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.
For assistance, visit the JiD website to find the relevant member organisation that can provide the help you need. Many of JiD members are featured in the resource listed in this Guide.
