SWI swissinfo.ch certified by the Journalism Trust Initiative

SWI swissinfo.ch has been certified for transparent and professional journalism, according to the standards of the Journalism Trust Initiative (JTI).

SWI swissinfo.ch is committed to trustworthy journalism and fights against fake news. Journalism worthy of the name must be clearly distinguished, by humans and algorithms. Quality and independence criteria must be transparent and verifiable to restore trust.

The JTI was initiated by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), with key support from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the news agency Agence France Presse. More than 120 experts and entities contributed to the development of the standard, which was completed at the end of 2019. SWI swissinfo.ch has been certified since mid-2021.

JTI certification goes beyond simply recognizing trustworthy media. JTI’s web application enables media outlets to verify, disclose and defend the transparency and integrity of their editorial processes.

Collectively, the JTI certificate has the power to promote trustworthy journalism and news sources and facilitate efforts to counter misinformation.
