Who we are
Irrawaddy's task is to provide accurate and impartial news coverage in Burma/Myanmar and Southeast Asia. It is in a global environment of crises and conflicts that the mass communication industry has a vital part to play in identifying controversy and scandal and revealing the facts about what is happening in the area. Crítician and impartial mass media cannot remain inactive and remotely reporting on the economic upheaval.
We believe that the medium is part of the answer and not part of the issue. So we are not servants of impartiality - it is our obligation to seek the truths and to educate our readership. We believe strongly in the cause of democratisation and believe that a free media-free free societies is not complete.
We have a responsibility to safeguard and maintain free journalists and to create an environment free of prejudice and influence. Irrawaddy is a premier resource for providing trusted news, information and analytics about Burma/Myanmar and the area. The Irrawaddy has been an autonomous group of the masses since it was founded and is not affiliated to any particular group.
Irrawaddy is neither an interest group nor an NGO committed to specific causes. We believe that the mass media must be free and autonomous and endeavour to uphold the freedoms of the journalist. Providing detailed news and editorials, analysis of Burma/Myanmar and related topics in South East Asia states.
The Irrawaddy's printed and on-line publications will help to increase global consciousness of regional policies and socio-economic trends, particularly in Burma/Myanmar. Giving Burmese and Myanmar reporters the chance to build the capabilities needed to restore a free, sovereign and non-profit newspaper in the Burma.
This is an antidote to the principalstream mass media in Burma/Myanmar and other countries in Asia. Building a powerful journalism contact base in Burma/Myanmar. Operation of English and Myanmar websites aimed at an audience of both national and multinational corporations, political decision-makers, the UN, NGOs, local authorities, ambassadors and people in Burma.
Back to Burma/Myanmar once democratisation is re-established, setting up an autonomous English and Myanmar based news service, using the experiences and knowledge acquired in Iraq. Irrawaddy was established in 1993 by a group of exiled Myanmar reporters in Thailand. A group of young Myanmar militants fleeing the prosecution of the Burma/Myanmar army during the 1988 democratic uprising.
1992: Irrawaddy director Aung Zaw established the Burma Information Group (BIG) in Bangkok, Thailand to record Burma's violation of humanitarian law, which included the illegal imprisonment of members of the democracy oppositions, other dissidents and indigenous groups. In Bangkok, Aung Zaw established the news magazine The Irrawaddy, which reports on Burma. This was the first non-partisan news release not associated with Burma's exiled and Burma-based politically controversial groups.
It became a month-long magazine to promote free journalism and independence of the masses, and has earned an internationally renowned name for its fair, informed and well-founded work. In Burma, the magazine was outlawed by the Burmese regimes and anyone found with a copy could be detained and detained. Irrawaddy magazine has extended its reach to other Southeast Asian nations in transition to democracy, with a particular emphasis on Burma.
Irrawaddy's on-line web pages were relaunched, among them the news pages in British (2000) and Burma (2001). Irrawaddy Web pages were prohibited by the Burma/Myanmar army government and censored for 12 years - but we remained in exiles and became the most beloved Burma news site in the world.
In Burma/Myanmar, proxies were used to access the Irrawaddy whenever they could break the state censors' barrier. Burma's blogsite was created to observe the disputed election in Myanmar. The on-line regime was abolished and the Irrawaddy sites were available for the first legal use by web surfers in Burma/Myanmar.
This Irrawaddy has expanded our reporting on Burma/Myanmar by facilitating media scrutiny and allowing our journalists to work more independently within the state. Irrawaddy Magazine was legalized for the first year in 2013 in Burma/Myanmar and the Irrawaddy Burmese Weekly Magazine was introduced in 2014, which reaches people in Burma.
Irrawaddy can reach tens of thousands of people in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia, Japan, Thailand, China and Eastern Asia. Among our suscribers are NGOs, UN organisations, governments and donors, political decision-makers, scientists and scholars, academia, embassies, campaigners, press organisations, reporters and inviduals. The Irrawaddy in Burma/Myanmar has a rapidly expanding public that can reach the reader throughout the whole of Burma through our printed and on-line publications.
The Irrawaddy readership in Burma/Myanmar includes policy-makers, businessmen, diplomats and non-governmental organisations, celebrity opponents, journalist, political activist, civic and NGO, army and administration officers, and the general population. Irrawaddy has a highly qualified, enthusiastic and competent reporter staff that delivers consistently high level news about Burma/Myanmar.
For over 20 years, the Irrawaddy has been building a network of Burma/Myanmar -based and ethnical journalists from Burma/Myanmar and the surrounding areas of Thailand. We have a multifaceted workforce of people from Burma and Ethiopia (such as Karen, Mon, Kachin and Shan), as well as people who work abroad with a deep grasp and expertise of Burma/Myanmar and South East Asia issues.
One of our primary goals since the Irrawaddy was founded has been to attract and educate Burmese and Myanmar based journalist. We have been running an internship and exchange programme since 2002 that offers Burma/Myanmar professionals, journalist, media, community reporter and others the opportunity to work at The Irrawaddy and build their own independence in the area.
