“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.
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.
