This book explores how journalism is practiced around the world and how there are multiple factors at the structural and contextual level shaping journalism practice.
Drawing on case studies of how conflicts, pandemics, political developments, or human rights violations are covered in an online-first era, the volume analyzes how journalism is conducted as a process in different parts of the world and how such knowledge can benefit today's globally connected journalist. A global team of scholars and practicing journalists combine theoretical knowledge and empirically rich scholarship with real-life experiences and case studies to offer a storehouse of knowledge on key aspects of international journalism. Divided into four sections – journalistic autonomy, safety, and freedom; mis(information), crises, and trust; technology, news flow, and audiences; and diversity, marginalization, and journalism education – the volume examines both trends and patterns, as well as cultural and geographical uniqueness that distinguish journalism in different parts of the world.
This volume will be of interest to students and scholars of journalism, media studies, and mass communication, as well as practicing journalists who want to report globally and anyone interested in gaining a foundational understanding of or researching journalism practices around the world.
