Research & analysis
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. Through empirical research, it informs 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 led by Dr Martin Moore.
