Publication of the Global Handbook of Media Accountability

The Global Handbook of Media Accountability is the impressive result of an international and interdisciplinary researcher project, of which MKI was part of.

The Global Handbook of Media Accountability brings together leading scholars to widen the debate on media accountability to a global level. It discusses different models of media self-regulation, newsroom transparency and civil society activities, that aim at holding the media to account for their social responsibility. With examination of the status quo of media accountability in 43 countries worldwide, it offers a theoretically informed comparative analysis of accountability regimes of different varieties. As such, it constitutes the first interdisciplinary academic framework comparing structures of media accountability across all continents and creates an invaluable basis for further research and policymaking.

Dr. Judith Pies was part of the research consortium and co-authored the chapter on Jordan in the Global Handbook. Together with Prof. Dr. Hanan Badr, Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg, she also adviced the editors on the research in the region Turkey, Israel, MENA and Iran. The international and interdisciplinary research project started in 2018 and culminated in the publication of the Global Handbook at the beginning of the year 2022.
