Editor’s Note: Encyclo has not been regularly updated since August 2014, so information posted here is likely to be out of date and may be no longer accurate. It’s best used as a snapshot of the media landscape at that point in time.

Plaza Pública is digital newspaper based in Guatemala.

The site was founded in February 2011, after Universidad Rafael Landívar asked a group of journalists to create an online news organization that would contribute to the construction of a “solid and vigorous democracy, with ethics and social justice.”

According to its website, Plaza Pública focuses on analysis, investigative reporting and debate. Its main topics are human rights, politics and economy.

Two thirds of its funding come from the university and the rest from non-governmental  organizations like Open Society Foundations, Hivos, and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung.
