Media Research Hub
The Media Research Hub "is part of the SSRC's Necessary Knowledge for a Democratic Public Sphere program, which works to ensure that debates about media and communications technologies are shaped by high-quality research and a rich understanding of the public interest.
"The program focuses on building a stronger culture of collaboration between scholars, advocates, practitioners, and policymakers in the field. Public policy and participatory democracy are improved when the producers and users of research are better connected, and have better access to data...
"The program is run in partnership with the Center for International Media Action (CIMA) and the Donald McGannon Communication Research Center at Fordham University. It is supported by a grant from the Knowledge, Creativity, and Freedom program of the Ford Foundation."
