About Us

Impactful research since 2010

The AUT research centre for Journalism, Media and Democracy (JMAD) was established in 2010 to promote research about the media and communication industries, news and journalism profession. JMAD's Co-Director's are Professor Wayne Hope and Dr Merja Myllylahti. Currently, we have 13 active researchers at the centre. Our members are researching a variety of topics such as media ownership, trust in news, election reporting, Māori media, radio and TV broadcasting, hate speech, climate reporting and AI in newsrooms.
