When we aren’t reporting the best of citizen and social web for you on Global Voices, we are busy being bloggers, journalists, academics, and human rights activists.

Here’s a complete list of our dynamic global team of volunteer writers, subeditors, and English translators.

Multi-lingual Newsroom

We aim to share stories beyond the boundaries of geography and language, so we organize our newsroom around regions, languages, and subjects.

We also work to ensure that language is not a barrier to understanding and embracing all people and stories. In Lingua, our Translation Managers oversee translating our stories into dozens of languages through a community of hundreds of volunteer translators.


Global Voices is driven by a broad team of region, subject and language editors, as well as managers responsible for the day-to-day management and strategic vision of Global Voices. Contractors and staff operate under applicable labor laws. Find the person responsible in our leadership team.


Our founders, volunteers, and staff are represented on our Board, along with some of the most influential innovators in global online media. Board members serve without renumeration. Meet the board.

Receive great stories from around the world directly in your inbox.
