The notion of collaboration and network-building is at the heart of CGCS’s work on media and communication. Our projects bring together academic institutions, scholars, NGOs, civil society groups, policymakers, regulators and private consultants from diverse national contexts.
Through our partnerships with academic institutions, civil society groups and individual scholars and practitioners, we seek to develop research capacity and professional networks that will further the field of international communication studies. We promote partnership on all levels, encouraging informal, ad hoc collaboration (for example, by connecting a lawyer seeking advice on a media case with an international expert) as well as institutional support (for example, helping to develop academic centers by recruiting faculty, assisting with research agendas, developing funding proposals, and providing curriculum support).
We work to continuously expand the network so it can support the needs of academics and students furthering global and comparative communication studies, as well as practitioners seeking empirically-grounded research for public-policy related activities.
