Who we are

The Sri Lanka Press Institute (SLPI) was established by the Newspaper Society of Sri Lanka, The Editors’ Guild of Sri Lanka, the Free Media Movement, and the Sri Lanka Working Journalist Association, to provide direction and leadership in media related activities. This includes the Press Complaints Commission of Sri Lanka (PCCSL), which encourages self-regulation and accountability and provides readers the right to challenge or correct reporting, while the Sri Lanka College of Journalism (SLCJ) is the training arm focusing on skills development for the journalistic profession.
