Who are we?

MILEN is an international network of Media and Information Literacy (MIL) experts. We operate from four continents: Asia, Africa, Europe and South America. MILEN is founded and supported by DW Akademie.

Our members come from different backgrounds in journalism, citizen engagement and development cooperation. Each of them contributes in a unique way to freedom of expression, an open and diverse debate, equal access to technologies and information, and empowering critical media consumers and producers.


Each of our experts has a recognised expertise in their area and proven track record in the field. Read about their recent endeavours and practical field work here!
