This report is meant to share the experiences and lessons of local media practitioners globally, and to build a community for networking and support. It’s about telling their story in their own voice – and helping all involved learn from one another.

This is a real-time qualitative report based on in-depth discussions with more than 35 journalists, editors, media leaders, and entrepreneurs who are transitioning legacy media and creating new local-media voices in the emerging and developing regions of Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, together with readings of their comments and self-reflections in blogs, speeches, and articles.

It’s part a report back to those who joined in our conversations, and part a stab at a global leveling up of the wisdom they’ve shared. On the IPI website, you can dig deeper into the topic through stand-alone reports and 21 companion case studies of many of the media profiled in this report.
