Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2010
    This description of Chiranuch Premchaiporn's work was prepared when Chiranuch Premchaiporn was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
    Chiranuch Premchaiporn has introduced a news and knowledge strategy that, by combining new media technologies with a flexible organization, ensures the free flow of information and exchange of diverse perspectives. Her online newspaper, Prachatai, is forging a more inclusive media environment, engaging tens of thousands of marginalized citizens and interest groups, at a moment when most of the Thailand’s media is moving in the opposite direction. Because of Prachatai, informed and balanced discussion of issues is surviving in Thailand.
