Policy Implications Of Explanatory Journalism


Using The Conversation Canada as a case-study, this team is evaluating the use of explanatory and non-profit journalism by policy makers and the effectiveness of these forms of journalism in influencing public policy. The project will assess how explanatory journalism is used in the Canadian policy making process, what sources and channels policy makers use, and how explanatory journalism flows through those networks

The team will develop recommendations and workshops aimed at both journalists and policy-makers around how to access and engage with explanatory journalistic content.
