MEDIANE - Media in Europe for Diversity Inclusiveness: Partners
The 4 main partners are:
CMFE – Community Media Forum Europe
Founded in 2004, CMFE links various members of the Third Media Sector at the European level. The “Third Media Sector” is made up of non profit-making media serving a local community and has as such a clearly distinct identity alongside the national public service sector and private commercial media. The CMFE is a common platform for networks, national federations and projects active within this sector. It has an observer status with the Steering Committee on the Media and Information Society (CDMSI) of the Council of Europe and is part of the CoE International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGO) Conference. Currently, CMFE has 107 members (of which 26 are National Federations) from 25 European countries. Among its affiliate members it counts also individuals and organisations from Africa, Asia and North America. Community media, taking the form of broadcasting and/or other electronic media projects, as well as print format, may share to a greater or lesser extent some of the following characteristics: independence from government, commercial and religious institutions and political parties; a not-for-profit nature; voluntary participation of members of civil society in the devising and management of programmes; activities aiming at social gain and community benefit; ownership by and accountability to the communities of place and/or of interest which they serve; commitment to inclusive and intercultural practices.
EFJ - The European Federation of Journalists
As the regional organisation of the International Federation of Journalists, EFJ has been within the framework of the IFJ Constitution to represent the interests of journalists' unions and their members. The EFJ links about 260.000 journalists in over thirty European countries.
