How does the world engage with its news media? In a dynamically shifting global journalism industry, we track the ever-shifting trends, changes and advancements, aiming to connect rigorous academic research with the practical experiences of professional journalists, media managers and policymakers.

Our focus is on internationally comparative research, and we conduct and facilitate research that addresses the most significant issues facing journalists and media organisations in a rapidly developing industry.

Our research is conducted by a team of in-house academics, along with Visiting Fellows and research associates. We also collaborate with researchers from across the University of Oxford and from other leading global universities.
