PeaceNet World News Service (PWN) is a electronic mail delivered news publication covering either a specific area of the world or an issue of global importance. Each day, three to ten articles along with a table of contents is delivered to you as a single e-mail message.

PeaceNet World News Service brings relevant news not found elsewhere. PeaceNet World News Service is a non-profit, non-commercial service dedicated to a free and balanced flow of multi-sourced news featuring first hand international news about the environment, human rights, development, the United Nations process, and the work of non- government organizations.

The anchor of the PeaceNet World News Service is the Inter Press Service (IPS). IPS is ranked the world's fifth largest in terms of media clients. Virtually invisible in the United States, IPS aims to improve South->South and South->North news flows. While western news agencies tend to focus on political affairs, coups, crises and conflicts, IPS delivers news that is analytical and contextualized, news that stresses global interdependence. IPS's writers are all local people covering the areas in which they live. IPS articles appear three days after copyright. In addition to IPS, PWN includes sample articles from the PeaceNet and EcoNet computer networks. Sources include the Pacific News Service, the United Nation Information Centre, Third World Network Features and others.
