Initiative for Journalistic Integrity (lith. – GŽI, Garbingesnės žiniasklaidos iniciatyva) – an online platform that unites journalists interested in higher professional standards, ethics and media transparency in Lithuania.
Established in 2007 m. as www.gzi.lt by a group of young enthusiastic journalists, it was supported by a number of well-known journalism professionals, researchers, bloggers, activists and other personalities willing to speak up for improving quality of journalism in the country. It was also endorsed by organizations such as Transparency International Lithuania (TILS) and Lithuanian Journalists’ Union (LŽS).
In 2012, the website re-launched under a new address gzi2.wordpress.com and continues to encourage public discussion on journalism issues with increasing number of contributors and supporters who believe it is the most important time to raise these issues.
