The International Reporting Project (IRP) is pleased to announce that it has moved to New America.
“We're proud to call New America our new home,” said John Schidlovsky, founding director of IRP. “We believe this move will strengthen our existing fellowship programs while also opening up new opportunities for international coverage.”
New America is a think tank and civic enterprise committed to renewing politics, prosperity, and purpose in the digital age. It generates big ideas, bridges the gap between technology and policy, and curates broad public conversation, while combining the best of a policy research institute, technology laboratory, public forum, media platform, and a venture capital fund for ideas.
“I am thrilled that the International Reporting Project is making New America its new home,” said Anne-Marie Slaughter, president and CEO of New America. “We often say ‘journalism is in our DNA’ here at New America, and I am excited to join forces with a group so devoted to in-depth international reporting. I look forward to the work we can do together.”
Since 1998, the International Reporting Project has provided opportunities for nearly 600 journalists to report on important global issues that have been under-covered in the U.S. and international media. Through its reporting trips and fellowship programs, IRP helps to inspire and enable independent and in-depth coverage of key international issues.
IRP's fellowship programs will continue as they have for the past eighteen years, and readers may still find us here at http://www.internationalreportingproject.org.
