New Internationalist is a multi-award winning, independent, non-profit media co-operative. For over 40 years, we’ve specialized in investigative reporting, publishing our magazine and books on human rights, politics, social and environmental justice.

We’re proud to have received many awards for our publishing excellence, most recently Utne Reader’s Independent Press Award for ‘Best International Coverage’, and Amnesty International’s Media Award for ‘Best Content, Consumer Magazines’. The United Nations has also awarded us for our ‘outstanding contribution to world peace and development’.

We invest in in-depth reporting and publishing because we believe it is essential. A well informed population is crucial for a functioning democracy. We have no media mogul or corporate advertisers influencing what we do. We are totally independent and non-profit, funded mainly by subscriptions and donations.

What we do

Through our magazine, magazine app, publications, e-books, website and social media we investigate global injustice and expose inequality. We cover stories the mainstream media sidestep and provide alternative perspectives on today’s global critical issues.

Working with our international network of writers, bloggers, campaigners and others we tell unreported stories from the Global South and help readers make sense of our complex and changing world. Our aim is to give readers real insight, sharp analysis and in-depth global coverage of today’s most challenging issues – from democracy in a digital era and fracking, to whistle-blowing and migration – and what actions they can take. As part of a global movement our mission is to create a fairer, more sustainable future.
