The report was commissioned by the Royal Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a team was put together comprising Helge Rønning and Kim Brice as external consultants and Hugo Stokke from CMI. International Media Support is an international NGO, based in Copenhagen, which provides support to media in conflict. The mandate covers media reporting on conflict situations, in particular armed conflict. Threatened media organisations are also covered by the mandate. The evaluation credited IMS for being experimental, innovative and willing to take risks in an often uncertain environment. Among critical points, there were uncertainties about the criteria for intervention, the organisational setup of IMS and their monitoring and evaluational capacity. The evaluation team concluded positively that IMS should be extended with additional funding and made a number of specific recommendations.
