Global Voices



Global Voices is a non-profit global citizens’ media project founded at Harvard Law School’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, a research think-tank focused on the Internet’s impact on society.

Global Voices connects with amazing people who are bloggers living in various countries around the world. They've invited these individuals as contributors or hired them as editors because they understand the context and relevance of information, views, and analysis being posted every day from their countries and regions on blogs, podcasts, photo sharing sites, videoblogs - and other kinds of online citizen media. They are helping to make sense of it all, and to highlight things that bloggers are saying which mainstream media may not be reporting.
