-International Journalism - media and development, Africa, Middle East Media, freedom of expression, international journalism and politics.
-Media and politics, democracy, civil society in the UK and internationally. Media and political campaigning and communication.
-Financial journalism, reporting markets and economic issues.
Polis is interested in examining issues through a variety of methods including research papers, panel discussions, and conference topics and through engaging with others via methods such as Twitter, Facebook and the Polis blog.
