About

The Media Freedom Coalition (MFC), is a cross-regional collaboration with 52 countries. These countries are working together proactively to advocate for media freedom at home and abroad.

They also advocate for the safety of journalists and media workers and hold to account those who harm them and severely restrict them for doing their job. It does so by:

  • Raising individual cases and situations where individuals practising journalism, as well as media organisations, have come under threat;
  • Making collective statements, to shine a global spotlight on media freedom and the safety of journalists;
  • Supporting members of the MFC and other countries to improve protections for the media, including identifying opportunities to support the Global Media Defence Fund;
  • Making collective diplomatic approaches; and Providing support and cooperation with organisations advocating for media freedom and the safety of journalists.
