OC Media brings you the latest news, commentary, multimedia, and investigations from north and south of the Caucasus, with in-depth analysis of the issues, movements, conflicts and people shaping the region.
We strive to shed light and offer a variety of perspectives on ongoing social, economic and political developments in the region, including in: human rights, ethnic and religious minorities, labour rights, gender and queer issues, development, as well as conflict dynamics in the region.
Utilising our network of correspondents, including local and international experts, political actors, and civil society activists, OC Media aims to stimulate constructive debate and provide balanced, fact-checked information. We post fresh news and features daily, and collaborate with a number of local media partners to translate their content into English and Russian.
OC Media was co-founded in January 2017 by Mari Nikuradze, Dominik K. Cagara, and Caroline Sutcliffe, initially under the auspices of Chai Khana NGO. It has received funding from the UK Government’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund, the European Endowment for Democracy, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung South Caucasus Office, Open Society Foundations, and the United Kingdom Foreign and Commonwealth Office Countering Disinformation Fund, with joint commissions with International Alert (EPNK/European Union Initiative), Civil.ge (COBERM), and Open Democracy Russia.
