About us

Other News is a non-governmental international association of people who are concerned about the decline of the information media. It was set up in May 2008 by Roberto Savio, founder of the Inter Press Service (IPS) news agency and its Director-General for 36 years.

Other News cooperates with IPS, whose professional vision it shares, but has no institutional relations with IPS.

The President of Other News is Roberto Savio and its Editor-in-Chief is Mario Dujisin, former Editor-in-Chief of IPS.

The statutes of Other News are available to readers on request.

Other News believes that it is useful to offer its readers a daily service that allows them to access to news and opinion that they will not find in their local newspapers but which they might wish to read as citizens who care about a world free from the pernicious effects of today’s globalisation.

As a non-profit and completely independent organisation, Other News offers its service for free in two languages: English and Spanish. Readers should be aware, however, that the two services rarely coincide, given the lack of resources which does not allow for a translation service from one language to the other.

Other News publishes material that has already been published in the press or by institutions such as research centres, universities and think tanks, and therefore carries clearly identifiable authorship.

Exceptionally, we publish contributions from our readers that have not been published in other media and only when the editorial board of Other News is certain about the professionalism and identity of the author.

Other News aims to secure plurality of sources, with the goal of leaving final judgment of contributions to its readers.

Other News has a network of collaborators who send suggestions for material to publish from their home countries.

Among them we would like to mention Chakravarthi Raghavan, former Editor-in-Chief of Press Trust of India (PTI), with a long and important professional career. He is now based in Geneva and is a recognised specialist in international trade and development issues.
