Global Reporting Centre

Global journalism, done differently.


We are an editorially independent and not-for-profit newsroom based at the University of British Columbia. We are leaders in reimagining global reporting.

About our journalism

We were founded in 2016 with the goal of shaking things up. We challenge the way global journalism is done – parachuting in and out of country, taking stories away for audiences “back home,” and stripping away the contributions of local journalists. We see ourselves as part of the next generation. In practice, that means we partner with journalists from around the world who have local knowledge and expertise, we focus on empowering marginalized voices, and we investigate stories that may otherwise go untold.
