This description of Jeremy Druker's work was prepared when Jeremy Druker was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2010.
Jeremy Druker is developing the foundations for professional journalism in two critical markets: Central Asia, where independent journalism is constantly under threat, and Central Europe, where there is a strong need for industry standards. By placing emerging local journalists at the center of independent and professional journalism and connecting them through a pan-regional network, Jeremy seeds the field with “media multipliers” and institutionalizes benchmark standards for the media industry. His efforts are keeping the flame of independent journalism alive and strengthening civil society in some of the most repressive countries in the world.
