The International Broadcasting Trust is an educational and media charity working to promote high quality broadcast and online coverage of the developing world. Our aim is to further awareness and understanding of the lives of the majority of the world´s people – and the issues which affect them.
Our work focuses on three main areas of activity:
- lobbying Government, regulators and broadcasters
- dialogue with the main public service broadcasters
- research on broadcast and online coverage of the developing world
We regularly publish research and organise events to encourage a greater understanding of the role which the media plays in engaging people in the UK with the wider world.
We are a membership based organisation. We organise briefings for our members so that they can work more closely with broadcasters and producers. For a current membership list see IBT members page
