Media and Journalism Research Center is an academically grounded yet outward facing center – drawing on our dynamic range of skills and expertise we offer a variety of analytically astute and practically orientated courses.

As a center we are committed to engaging with organizations outside academia. We want to open up our research activities in a way that augments democratic discourses, helps actors influence policy decisions and, ultimately, leads to the enrichment of the public sphere. Simply put, within an increasingly complicated media landscape we want to give NGOs, private foundations, companies, universities, think tanks and other groups the knowledge and tools needed to make their voices heard.

The center is a hub of practitioners and academics with experience in teaching, research and advocacy. Our team of experts work on topics such as media and power, journalism and freedom of expression, community media and media production, amongst others. We have an extensive network of fellows who can be engaged in teaching our courses.

We understand that each organization or group’s needs are different and, as such, offer bespoke courses with full flexibility in terms of length, location and focus.

At the moment, we offer the following courses and workshops:

Working with media outlets and journalists: what an NGO should know

How to identify and fight disinformation

Advocacy: strategizing, planning and measuring impact

How to run a media company evaluation
