FREE SPEECH PARTNERSHIP
WHO READS US?
www.newnations.com is a not-for-profit company delivering reports free on screen, currently standing at
approximately 16,000 readers. We are accessed from over 100 nations. We include diplomats and researchers of many foreign governments, as well as those of the
West, a high proportion of senior business executives, including from Fortune 500 corporations and academics of all nations etc. We are reaching readers in many countries where democracy and human rights protection are either fragile or nonexistent.
WHAT HAVE WE ACHIEVED SO FAR?
We know that our reports are read by political, intellectual, and industrial
elites and "oppositionists" in various countries, who can then use them toward
achieving the objective of protecting human rights and advancing democracy.
Although the majority of our readers are based in developed countries, many are
located in countries with a reputation for human rights abuses and a clear
democratic deficit. Currently we have 344 registered readers in Iran, 340 in
Afghanistan, 260 in Pakistan, 96 in Libya, 88 in Egypt, and 56 in Syria. These statistics are particularly gratifying and demonstrate our considerable reach.
Following are some examples of how our work is used:-
WORLD CONCERN - a British based Charity
Foreign governments cite our information, boasting of their moving up in the
Of course countries poorly ranked will not publicise their status but they
are aware of their ranking and many, we think, are concerned enough to want to
take steps to improve their conditions, to help deflect criticism from World
Concern and other watchdog groups.
have been told that researchers for US Senators and Congressmen often go
straight to our websites when they need to produce a country report,
particularly for countries which are not reported on, or are less well known.
Newnations contributing editor who writes monthly analyses on North Korea
attended an international seminar on the subject of that country.
In attendance was the US State Department delegation leader in the six
country negotiations regarding North Korea's status on nuclear weapons. He
told our editor that one of our recent analyses was so helpful that he
distributed it, not only to other members of the delegation, but also to the
delegations from Russia, China, South Korea and Japan.
US Chamber of Commerce tells us that they refer their member corporations to
our country reports, particularly in cases when they wish to give their
members a better understanding of a country (e.g. with regard to
corruption), but when it would be inappropriate to say so themselves.
We tell the world about the world
Our mission is to further the promotion of liberal democracy and the
safeguarding of the environment by the actions of accountable governments.
To advance this cause we use the oxygen of publicity to report, without
fear or favour, the affairs of nations that are in transition, their
politics, economics, business, finance and human rights - and we tell it
how it is, consistently, calmly, and objectively. There is a void of
easily accessible information which we seek to fill by offering well
organised one-stop-shop country pages, for information past, present, and realtime.
To move forward and fulfil our development program it is now necessary to widen the circle of contributors.
The target nations on our next expansion list are: -
ASIA: Indonesia, China, Mongolia, Lao PDR, Cambodia, Malaysia.
AFRICA: Zimbabawe, Nigeria, Kenya.
LATIN AMERICA: Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil, Argentina.
