Sweden's TV4 joins INSI

The International News Safety Institute (INSI) is pleased to extend its reach in Sweden by welcoming TV4 as our newest member. Based in Stockholm, TV4 is a Swedish television network that started broadcasting in 1990 and has fast become one of the largest television channels in the country.

INSI is a member-based organisation dedicated to the safety of journalists. We offer a vital forum for networking and information sharing via our membership portal, alerts and advisories, workshops, regional meetings and webinar discussions.

“We look forward to supporting TV4, learning from them and working with them,” said INSI Director Hannah Storm.

“We really value TV4’s commitment to safety at a time when the threats to journalists - physical, emotional and digital – mean that INSI's work is more necessary than ever.”

This year INSI has welcomed several new members, including the Swedish media company Bonnier News, the German broadcaster Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR) and the non-profit media organisation The GroundTruth Project.

“TV4 is very happy to become a part of the INSI network and participate in and support INSI’s important work improving the safety of journalists around the world,” said TV4 News’ Senior Correspondent and Security Officer Stefan Borg.

“This gives us new opportunities to report from conflict areas and have the best possible preparation regarding security.”

TV4 joins INSI’s vast global network of media organisations such as BuzzFeed, Reuters and Sky News, which regularly meet to exchange security information about journalist deployments and share good practices for dealing with the changing threats to those involved in the news industry.
