Alliance editor Charles Keidan gives a special preview of the launch of our freshly redesigned December issue of our publication, focusing on philanthropy and the media.
Alliance is pleased to offer free access to this issue thanks to Democracy and Media Foundation who are sponsoring the removal of the paywall in order that the content can be shared as widely as possible.
In the special feature Charles Keidan and guest editor, Miguel Castro of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, explore the opportunities and risks for the media, and society at large, of a model of journalism increasingly reliant on philanthropic income.
The issue profiles selected philanthropists owning or backing media, a run-down of foundation programmes on the media and features contributions from Barbara Hans, Editor of Spiegel online, Rachel White of The Guardian, James Deane of BBC Media Action, and Gustavo Gorriti of IDL Reporteros in Peru, among others.
Alliance aims to hold up a mirror to philanthropy worldwide – we hope you enjoy the new view.
Our forthcoming issue goes live on Tuesday 5th December 2017.
