Global Ground Media

Global Ground Media was born when four freelance journalists and photographers discussed an alternative media company (thanks Andre, Lauren and Nick!).

A media company focusing on in-depth investigations and cross-border stories instead of breaking news. Where international and local journalists combine their knowledge and skills to uncover underreported stories.

Those (photo)journalists had lived through the decline of foreign desks and the tightening grip on local media in Asia. As budgets and press freedom declined, so did the opportunities to report in-depth.

That was over three years ago. Global Ground started publishing in 2018.


Our mission is to report major issues in Asia of global significance. Things like genocide, climate change and disinformation. We don’t shy away from complexity and look for solutions.

The Manifesto includes 10 promises to readers here. 


Global Ground offers more than stories. We also want to support the journalism ecosystem. We do that by giving trainings in financial research and digital security.

We also support other media in developing viable business models. Lastly, our business intelligence department conducts market research.
