Dr. Dorji Wangchuk

Director, Contentment Foundation Bhutan

Dorji Wangchuk has a laurea degree in electronics engineering from the University of Bologna in Italy and is the former Communications Director for the King of Bhutan. Dorji made history in the late 90’s, when he brought television and FM radio services to Bhutan for the first time ever. Subsequently, he made a career shift and moved to documentary filmmaking where he won three major international awards. He has also written for several books and has penned articles as a guest columnist for Bhutan Times – first private newspaper in the country.

Dorji received his Ph.D. in Communications from the University of Macau, where he developed a new form of journalism called Middle Path Communication. The one of the main purposes of Middle Path Communication is to support Bhutan as it inevitably integrates the complexities of social, television, and print media for the modern age. Dorji is currently leading an extension of the Contentment Foundation to take root in Bhutan as an independent NGO.
