As a not-for-profit journal covering Asian politics, policy and commentary, Diaspora aims to create a network of academicians, bloggers, journalists and lawyers who can step in for editorial roles and select local issues for a global audience. So, you can be a student of international affairs, public policy or any other area of specialization. You select, decide and curate content as per your editorial judgement.
Some key pointers:
-You need to have a strong command over English. Sometimes, you may have to step in and edit user-generated content (UGC).
-Social media proficiency would be a great asset. But not mandated as compulsory.
-Tracking major news: This would be critical as you will have to keep an eye on politics, policy and other beats from your region.
-You don’t work on any schedule. Just step in when you can once a week after discussing with the main team.
-It’s a voluntary role.
-You will work with editors from various Asian countries on stories or curate content from different sources.
Below are some roles available:
Editor: North Korea
Editor: South Korea
