To celebrate its 60th anniversary, the International Press Institute is teaming up with the Poynter Institute, one of the premier journalism training centers in the world, to answer a set of questions including “Is the future really so bleak? Is the decline a global phenomenon? Are we moving into a new ‘golden age’? And what does it mean for press freedom? For that purpose, they set out on “a global investigation assembling an international group of editors, journalists, visionaries and skeptics to discover how the future of the news is developing around the world.”
I was honored to be asked to write an article,” Media Face Different Difficulties in Less Mature Markets”, in which I expose my experience in working with emerging markets, which face their own sets of problems. I recommend the IPI Report in its integrity which includes many respectable names we all know in this industry, such as Jeff Jarvis, Dan Gillmor, Grzegorz Piechota, Alan Rusbridger, Mario Garcia, Turi Munthe and many others. You can find my contribution on page 106.
