Kia ora and Welcome!

We are the AUT research centre for Journalism, Media and Democracy. We are an active research centre, and we conduct research that matters. Our main research projects are about media ownership, trust in news, and news reporting in election times.


Keep up with our news and research



The JMAD's annual Aotearoa New Zealand Media Ownership Report was published on December 8, 2022. The report is available here.

JMAD has also published three new podcasts about elections. Listen Dr Greg Treadwell and Dr Sarah Baker debating about them.



We are an active research centre and have currently three main projects. Every year, we investigate New Zealand media ownership patterns and trust in news and publish reports based on our findings. Additionally, we examine reporting during election times.

We are located in the School of Communication Studies at Auckland University of Technology.
