The Global Press Style Guide is a living document that establishes rules for referring to the people and places around the world where Global Press reporters work. Each entry is crafted with the specific intention of promoting dignity and precision in the practice of international journalism.
The Global Press Style Guide uses four decision-making principles to ensure source dignity and reader clarity in every word we publish.
What is the developing world? Where is the Global South? These are two examples of words that force readers to make assumptions. In general, these terms are sanitized synonyms for poverty.
When we use precise words and phrases, we offer dignity to the people in our stories and clarity to the people reading our stories.
Relying on labels — immigrant, victim, inmate, voter — distills a person’s humanity to a single factor or something that has happened to them (for example, the terms victim and survivor).
The Global Press Style guide bars words that require readers to make assumptions about what those words might mean (such as terrorist or rebel). In most cases, careful writing can be utilized to refer to people as people and not as a distillation of their circumstances.
The Global Press Style Guide always opts for terms that provide accuracy in context. Precise terms are emboldened by context-rich descriptions, which are often necessary to prevent bias or the stereotypes that often define people around the world.
At Global Press, we always allow sources to self-identify. This ensures we're using the most precise terms that will allow the source to recognize themselves in the story.
The responsibility to cover the world's least-covered places requires a constant commitment to investigative assumptions behind vocabulary choices.
At Global Press, our Style Guide Committee rigorously debates entries to root out bias and find the best rule and rationale to enable dignified, precise global storytelling.
The Global Press Style Guide has been adopted by dozens of news rooms, universities, NGOs and foundations that are committed to equitable and inclusive vocabulary.
Want a tailored version? Global Press News Services, the B2B-facing division of Global Press, offers style guide consultations to help global businesses achieve dignity and precision in their language.

The civil war ended here in 2006. Nine years later the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was created. But legal barriers, logistics issues and a lack of political will have left tens of thousands of complaints stagnating. Among them, the few sexual assault cases may face the greatest obstacles.
