Research and Media Network

Bringing people together to improve communication of research findings

Everyone in this network understands that journalists play a crucial role in development. We have all seen amazing coverage...and coverage that was not so amazing. We asked a U.S. journalist who has lived and traveled extensively in developing countries to share his perceptions of the strengths and weaknesses of media coverage of development issues and to offer recommendations for improving coverage. We also asked six leading journalists from Argentina, Egypt, India, Japan, Uganda, and the UK to respond to the commentary (at least one is a member of this network). We have posted their reflections on our website, and we set up a blog for you to participate in the discussion: Please read these thoughtful essays and join the conversation.

Best wishes,


Michael Rubinstein,

Head of Media Relations

International Food Policy Research Institute

Hi Michael

Thanks for sharing this. I have been hunting around for a good brief document on media and development and this is ideal. I will share it widely and try to come back to the blog and comment on it.
