Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2009
This description of Alicia Cytrynblum's work was prepared when Alicia Cytrynblum was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2009.
Through the concept of “social journalism,” Alicia is transforming the news media in Argentina by giving visibility to social issues and by bringing human rights and social perspectives to political and economic news. She is also developing a collaborative approach to news-making by creating incentives for newspapers to produce collective coverages on social issues of national relevance. Alicia has trained more than two thousand journalists from 14 of Argentina’s 23 provinces and the federal district. She is introducing social journalism as a new discipline in Argentina’s most prominent universities.
