Hello! my name is Kunāl Majumder

I'm a press freedom and journalist safety advocate with interest in the areas of press freedom, politics, democracy and media capture. I’m currently the India Representative of the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ). I'm also an advisor to Impulse Model Press Lab, Shillong, a visiting faculty at Mass Communication Research Centre, Jamia Millia Islamia university, New Delhi and an adjunct professor at Haridev Joshi University of Journalism and Mass Communication, Jaipur. I began my career in journalism in 2006 and have worked with media houses like Tehelka, Indian Express Group, Rajasthan Patrika Group, VICE and Zee Media Corporation. I'm a recipient of the UNFPA-Laadli Award for Gender Sensitivity and the Statesman Award of Rural Development. Apart from journalism, I'm also interested in Tibetan Buddhism as a practitioner as well as academically.
