International News: Provision, Trust and Consumption in a Rapidly Changing Broadcasting Environment

The Reuters Institute is pleased to announce the commencement of a new research project, jointly funded by Carnegie Corporation and BBC World Service on international news provision, trust and consumption in a rapidly changing broadcasting environment.

Two new post doctoral researchers, Dr Anne Geniets and Dr Brian Rotheray, will be examining the role of international media and news flows in globalization through mapping the changing provision of international news in 6 African countries ( Egypt, Algeria, Senegal, Cameroun, Nigeria and Kenya) as well as in India and Pakistan, assessing the evidence for patterns of consumption, and reviewing how attitudes to trust in global media sources may be changing.
