Jemstone is a development and communications consultancy .
Untainted information is the life-blood of a healthy society, enabling: participation, informed debate, evidence-based decision-taking and progress. We operate at every stage of this process: the flow of raw information, analysing and processing it, and disseminating it effectively.
We train journalists, media professionals and their managers: presenters at Al Jazeera, cartoonists at An Nahar, set designers at NileTV, investigative journalists in Yemen, economic correspondents in Palestine, heads of department at MENA.
We are consultants to media organisations: analysing training needs, managing change, developing web-sites, updating systems, investigating opportunities. And we work closely with the development community, advising on media strategy, lobbying and campaigning, stimulating debate, replicating good practice. 
We produce TV and video programmes, design and run web-sites, write articles, publish pamphlets, create audio features, circulate images and ideas.
We teach at universities; we run career development seminars; we explore key media issues; and we continue to research the links between good media, democracy and development. more>>
Jemstone is a network of over 1,500 journalists and media professionals mostly from Europe and the Middle East. It began in the early 1990s as an EU-funded project to increase media contacts and understanding and now is an independent, Dutch-registed ngo, Stichting JourNetwork and a UK-based consultancy, The Jemstone Network Ltd.

20 years after the EU's far-reaching decision to engage with its neighbours to the South, Jemstone's begun a drive to reconnect the 1,500+ members of its network. See
