<!-- Include all unused fields for future use. See Infobox Union for usage. -->

International Federation of Journalists, IFJ, is a global union federation of journalists' trade unions—the largest in the world. The organization aims to protect and strengthen the rights and freedoms of journalists. It is also dedicated to working for solidarity, social justice, labor rights, globalization, democracy, human rights, and fighting poverty and corruption.

First founded in Paris in 1926, the federation was relaunched twice in 1946 and in 1952. Today, the IFJ represents around 600,000 members in more than 100 countries. The main office is located in Brussels, Belgium. Its official languages are English, French and Spanish

The IFJ states that "The IFJ is the organisation that speaks for journalists within /.../ the international trade union movement.". But it claims that they do "not subscribe to any given political viewpoint".

Full membership is open to journalists' trade unions only. Other national organisations of journalists that are devoted to media freedom may be admitted as associate members. The IFJ has regional groups, such as the Federation of Latin American Journalists (FEPALC),the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) which organizes the Labour Rights Expert Group(LAREG) and the Authors' Rights Experts Group (AREG), and the Federation of African Journalists (FAJ). It has regional offices in Africa, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific Region.
