“New Global Journalism” is a reporting project of the International Newsroom, a class at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Sixteen students analyzed media trends in four countries — China, Ethiopia, Mexico and Syria. These are places where ordinary citizens, activists, bloggers, new media entrepreneurs and mainstream media alike have taken a modern approach to reporting to fit the needs of their environment.

Coleen Jose, Wenxiong Zhang and Katie Campo reported on China.

Jefferson Mok, Katherine Jacobsen, Ngozi Onouha and Alexandra Katsoulis reported on Ethiopia.

Camilo Vargas, Trevor Bach, Sadef Kully and Kathryn Brenzel reported on Mexico.

Laurent Y. Peter, Hira Nafees Shah, Sana Beg, Anastassia Smorodinskaya and Sonia Paul reported on Syria.

Laurent Y. Peter and Sonia Paul designed the site.

Sonia Paul helped coordinate the project for the class.

Ann Cooper, the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism’s CBS Professor of Professional Practice in International Journalism and former director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, supervised and edited the project.
