Latest research: ‘News Deserts’ in the UK

Our current research project will illuminate the rise of ‘news deserts’: areas of the UK where local news coverage has declined, or disappeared altogether.

This project, starting in autumn 2021, will produce an action-focused report; it’s important to the CJP that this will inform concrete changes in legislation, industry and culture of the sector, rather than being purely an academic exercise.

More information coming soon.
