Home > International Journalism > SPJ-Korea Exchange

For the past four years, SPJ and Korean journalists have built a cultural and professional exchange. Delegations from the Journalists Association of Korea attended our conventions in Fort Worth, Tampa and New York, came to a seminar on international journalism in Washington, D.C., and have been guests in the homes of our members. SPJ delegations have traveled to South Korea to attend forums with journalists from throughout East Asia, visit the Demilitarized Zone and offer our support to JAK when it faces battles similar to ours. We have mutual interests in promoting journalistic ethics and battling for free press and freedom of information.


March 2007

The Journalists Association of Korea, in conjunction with the International Federation of Journalists, is hosting a 2007 Special Conference from March 11-16 aimed at “Peace and Reconciliation of the Korean Peninsula.” The IFJ-JAK event has brought together about 200 journalists, celebrities and dignitaries. Meetings are taking place in Seoul, South Korea and Mt. Keumgang, North Korea. It is the first time Korean journalists have met in the spirit of reconciliation since the IFJ was founded in 1926.

Representing SPJ at the special conference are Region 4 Director Kevin Smith and Quill editor Joe Skeel. Read about the trip (and see pictures of what they saw) by following this link.
