The ‘Asian Eye’ web magazine reflects the commitment by IPS Asia-Pacific to seek and deliver news, information, opinion and analysis relevant to the global South, in a manner that reflects diverse viewpoints from within the region.
Through this magazine as well as its other media products and work, IPS Asia-Pacific aims to nurture space for developing-country and regional journalists through writing opportunities and training -- and thus help foster a more balanced flow of information in international media and communication.
In some two decades that IPS Asia-Pacific has been in the region, it has worked with people, partners, foundations and organisations with similar goals around building stronger media skills as a contribution to more open discussion and analysis of social, development and other issues.
Over the years, IPS Asia-Pacific has worked on different kinds of media training and communication programmes in partnership with a mix of organisations. These have included the Rockefeller Foundation, Sasakawa Peace Foundation, Japan Foundation, ActionAid International, ILO Informal Economy Project, UNIFEM East Asia and the Pacific, UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia-Pacific, and the Ford Foundation.
Some of our media training and communication programmes:
-Imaging Our Mekong (www.newsmekong.org), an annual media fellowship programme for Mekong journalists to explore and report on transboundary issues as a result of development and economic integration
-Asia Water Wire (www.asiawaterwire.net), a series on water-related features in the region
-Bridges from Asia, a series that focuses on issues that link Asia with Europe, as well as Asia and North America
-web coordination of the Asia Media Forum (www.theasiamediaforum.org)
-production of TerraViva conference newspapers for the ILO Informal Economy Project, World Social Forums in in Mumbai and Karachi and the XV International AIDS Conference in 2004
-On the Asian Migration Trail, a training project and news series on migration and reproductive health
-Training programme and exposure for Indonesian journalists in in-depth reporting, taking into consideration the needs of the media in the democratic environment ushered in by the end of the Suharto era in 1998.
Support in the form of contribution of relevant quality news material or partnerships in capacity-building and training of media, as well in generating content for distribution to the region would be a contribution to good reporting from the region. Your support will go to helping build the capacity of journalists from the region and help make their voices heard in international media.
