This is Fojo

We strengthen journalism for a more democratic and sustainable world

Established in 1972, Fojo Media Institute has been a driving force in strengthening and advancing journalism and media in Sweden. Since the early nineties, our impact has extended globally, with a primary focus on Eastern Europe, the Western Balkans, sub-Saharan Africa, South America, and Asia. 

As a part of Linnaeus University in Småland, Sweden, our strong ties within the media industry and among professionals allow us to serve as a crucial nexus, intertwining theoretical expertise with hands-on industry practices.  

Our collaborative approach is built on partnerships, engaging with academic institutions, the media sector and civil society to maintain relevance within specific local contexts. Fojo’s commitment lies in contributing to a journalism profession equipped to navigate the dynamic challenges of an ever-evolving media industry.
