The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism is a UK-based research center and think tank. Founded in 2006, it operates the Thomson Reuters Journalism Fellowship Program, also known as the Reuters Fellowship, through the University of Oxford.
Reuters Institute places high value on independent journalism, the power of news, and the importance of an informed public. The institute is committed to seeking truth and reporting it. Their three key focuses are journalism, the media industry, and the public that they serve in the ongoing work of remaking the profession and the organizations that enable it.
The Institute emphasizes close relations between practice and research accomplished by facilitating the global exchange of journalists and students, and by driving inquiry and discussions about the future of news.
They describe their work ethic as ensuring “that journalists, editors, and media executives face the opportunities and challenges of a changing media environment from a position of strength.” The Institute’s stated goal is to help industry professionals build better and more sustainable journalism for the future.
According to their website, “The Institute hosts journalists from all over the world, connects them with professional peers and leading academics from a wide range of different fields, and facilitates the exchange of ideas by taking part in public debates, by hosting conversations, and by publishing new and interesting work.”
The Institute’s main source of funding over the last 30 years is the Thomson Reuters Foundation, ”working to advance media freedom, raise awareness of human rights issues, and fostering more inclusive economies.”
