Developing countries, the Third World, the South - all out of date and inaccurate terms. Since the 1990s, the term the Majority World has been used to represent the countries where the majority of humankind reside. For the last four decades, the NI magazine has provided an in-depth analysis of issues relevant to the Majority World - poverty, human rights, climate change, sustainability, materialism and inequality and the disparity between the haves and have-nots. Now this important library of information of historical and current issues is available digitally in the NI Archive, an invaluable reference for students and anyone with an interest in social and environmental justice.
The New Internationalist provides an independent voice for those who normally have little or no access to being heard in the corporate media; the global poor and marginalized. NI has been awarded for its excellence in publishing many times since its inception in 1973. NI has also received many accolades from enthusiastic readers, ranging from John Pilger to Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
The Utne Reader magazine global Independent Press Awards: awarded 'Best International Coverage' 8 times since 1989; in 2000 NI won the highly valued readers' poll; in 1998 the New Internationalist was selected as the winner of the 'General Excellence Award' for magazines with a circulation over 50,000.
The United Nations Association Media Peace Prize: This prize is given for an outstanding contribution to world peace and development.
United Nations Development Programme Paul Hoffman Prize: awarded for NI's outstanding contribution to world development.
