The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is a non-profit organization that has the unique goal of using "independent, vigorous media" to better the human condition. Under the "Our Work" tab at the top of their website, you can view their "Programs by Topic," or by region of the world, such as "Latin America/Caribbean", "Eastern Europe/Central Asia", and "Sub-Saharan Africa". Under the "Resources" tab at the top of the page of the site, visitors shouldn't miss clicking on the "Manual: Fighting Words" to peruse the free downloadable copy of the organization's book that sprung from a three day conference about the misunderstanding and misinformation in Arab and U.S. media. The 133-page book is available in both English and Arabic as well as in multiple downloadable formats. Another free downloadable publication, also under the "Resources" tab, is the recently created Chinese-English glossary of financial terms and acronyms, created through a collaboration between Merrill Lynch and the ICFJ Global Business Journalism Program at Tsinghua University. A much-needed common business vocabulary between the Chinese and English languages makes up the 345-page glossary. For those journalists who are interested in interacting online with their peers, the ICFJ offers them the opportunity to join a network of international journalists. Every week there is a discussion question to get some debate, or agreement, started.
