The Centre for the Study of Media, Communication and Power explores how news provision, political communication, public discourse, civic engagement and media power are changing in the digital age.
We do this through rigorous empirical research, and communication of the findings of this research to inform relevant academic and public policy debates and civic society responses, in order to help promote diversity, fairness, transparency and accountability in media and communication.
The Centre is based in the Policy Institute at King’s College London. The director is Dr Martin Moore, and the Deputy Director is Dr Gordon Neil Ramsay.
The Centre is advised by a range of senior figures from the media and civil society.
The Centre has developed from the foundations of the Media Standards Trust, an independent think tank that has been conducting research on issues of media and public policy since 2006, and has been based at the Policy Institute at King’s since September 2013.
