The International Association of Public Media Researchers (IAPMR) brings together quality academic and industrial research from different disciplines. We support the continual evolution of public service media by aggregating theory and practice.  We look critically from industrial, production, audience, technological, economic and societal perspectives. We run conferences, produce publications and communicate knowledge to academia, industry, governments, and publics.


CEU CMDSCEU-CMDS

The Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS) is a research center for the study of media, communication, and information policy and its impact on society and practice. CMDS is part of the Central European University’s (CEU) School of Public Policy and serves as a focal point for an international network of acclaimed scholars, research institutions and activists. According to its strategy, the Center focuses on the three key challenges faced by journalism: media capture, disjointed policies and declining trust, and addresses these problems with a combination of applied research and investigative journalism.
