Remotivi is a media studies and monitoring institute based in Indonesia. Its field of work stretches from research, advocacy, and publishing. We believe that the media held an important facet in society; it mediates information relevant for social, political, cultural, and economic practices. The media, as many strongly believe, is the fourth pillar of democracy.

Founded in Jakarta, 2010, Remotivi is initiated by independent citizens, in response to over-commercialized post-authoritarian media industry practices at the expense of its public responsibility.

Financially, Remotivi is supported by public funding, research projects, and donor grants. Remotivi have established partnerships with Yayasan Tifa (part of Open Society Foundation), Hivos, and Cipta Media Seluler.

On August 2014, Indonesia’s Independent Journalist Alliance (Aliansi Jurnalis Independen - AJI) bestowed Tasrif Award for Remotivi’s work in advocating freedom of press and freedom of expression. is an academic channel dedicated to media studies. We publish various articles, including analyses, opinion pieces, journal or research finding summaries, and practically any kind of article offering fresh perspectives and insightful ideas on media issues, especially on Indonesian and Southeast Asian media issues. Some of our publications were written by our staffs, but we also encourage and welcome contributions from that haven’t been published in any other media.
