As media is playing a very important role in formulating public opinion, monitoring and accountability. In addition, its role in revealing the truth objectively and in a professional way. Where the Syrian Media did not follow in decades. As a part of the efforts that are aiming to regulate the media process, which has been evolved constantly and fast specially after the public movement started in March 2011.
Due to this movement many media institution came to life. Due to the absence of inclusive laws to regulate media performance, an urgent need has arisen for a binding charter to which the signatories ethically adhere. Based on the above, the undersigned, who are a group of independent Syrian media outlets, after much discussion and the presentation of various views, reached agreement among themselves over a host of principles forming a charter that helps establish a state of balance and stability for the Syrian society’s benefit and development. They hope that all those to whom this charter applies will respect its provisions and adhere to them. They called it a “charter of honour”.
