This project examines the changing relationship between government, media and diverse publics in the UK. The Iraq war 2003 and subsequent events raise important questions about the impact of security policy on civil liberties and human rights, multiculturalism, democracy and citizenship, Such as:

  • Why has there been a breakdown in trust between politicians, journalists and news audiences?
  • What kind of revitalisation of democratic processes might restore trust?
  • How do diverse audiences interpret the news available to them?
  • What use do media make of experts and do they help or hinder public understanding of threats of security?

The project examines how changing practices of news production and consumption affect political and democratic processes. It explores these questions by connecting the following research areas: 

  • The empirical study of multi-ethnic news audiences
  • Analyses of ‘security’ news stories and imagery defined as salient by audiences
  • The judgements of media and political actors about the security-media nexus.
