Hardly any other industry was hit as early, and is impacted as much by digital technology as the media.
Today, this sector is populated with an abundance of different actors, driven by a range of motives, against a diverse, complex background of cultural norms and regulatory contexts.
The GMR’s core team and fellows, together with our trusted, long-standing network of partner organisations and experts around the world, is making sense of it all. To that end, we work primarily as data and investigative journalists, rather than scholarly researchers. This results in our distinct approach that combines a professional reporter’s rigour of fact checking and securing evidence with a focus on impact and a flavour of storytelling.
Our research, analysis and open-source-based intelligence supports both public and corporate actors in their day-to-day operations, as well as in their strategic forward thinking.
