Global Risk Journalism Hub
The Global Risk Journalism Hub (GRJH) brings together researchers, educators and practitioners from around the world to investigate the news reporting of globalized crises issues.
Journalists across the world are equally challenged when addressing globalized ‘risks’, such as health pandemics, environmental crises and humanitarian conflicts. In this sense, ‘risk journalism’ emphasizes the way journalists of different world regions engage in these globalized issues. As we face a world in which journalists are challenged by big data, new actors and disinformation, it is essential to examine current journalistic practice to lay the grounds for the development of new models of transnational global crisis reporting.
Our aim is to inspire collaborative projects transcending national boundaries, opening up new spaces for dialogue and debate regarding how best to improve the quality of journalism in the public interest within today’s dimensions of globalized digital data ecoystems.
