The International Media Council was established with the Next Century Foundation in 2007 by journalists and opinion-formers to address concerns in the international media. The Council works to facilitate rights of access for journalists deals with problems faced by journalists ranging from imprisonment on one extreme to censorship on the other. The Council also deals with issues in relation to xenophobia and disinformation, and publishes a Media Ethics Code. The Council also grants annual international media awards for best practice.
