Joyce Barnathan is president of the International Center for Journalists, which Knight Foundation supports to advance excellence and innovation in journalism.
As the International Center for Journalists celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, we have our eyes on the future.
Like our flagship program, the Knight International Journalism Fellowships, ICFJ isn’t content to simply keep up with or react to new developments. Instead, we drive news innovation.
We help our partners in the field harness the power of digital media, the Internet and data to deliver the information that people need to make informed decisions and live better lives.
ICFJ staffers bring deep international experience to their work, whether they were born abroad, served as Peace Corps volunteers, worked as former Knight Fellows or reported overseas for BusinessWeek, USA Today, NPR and other news outlets. What’s more, we actively seek out, recruit and partner with the most probing journalists and most promising innovators in each region.
Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts. We believe that democracy thrives when people and communities are informed and engaged.
