Global Exchanges

We deepen understanding on issues of vital importance.

Each year, ICFJ embeds scores of international journalists in U.S. newsrooms, where they build lasting partnerships and exchange skills. U.S. journalists have the opportunity to go abroad, reporting under-covered stories and bringing international insights to their home audiences. These efforts not only improve coverage  they help to reduce stereotypes among journalists and the audiences they reach.
