Jyllands-Posten Foundation Contributes $50,000 to Freedom House
For the second year in a row, Freedom House has received a generous donation from the Jyllands-Posten Fond to support Freedom of the Press, Freedom House’s annual analysis of global media independence. The Freedom of the Press project draws on the expertise of 50 analysts and experts in assessing the trends and trajectory of press freedom around the world. The assessment provides numerical ratings and analytical reports of media independence in 197 countries and territories.
“Thanks to the support of the Jyllands-Posten Foundation, Freedom House remains at the forefront in monitoring trends for media independence and the diverse threats to it,” said Freedom House President David J. Kramer. “Since 1980, Freedom of the Press has provided a critical resource for policy-makers, journalists, and free expression advocates to strengthen media freedom."
