Established in 2019, the Journal of Media & Public Policy is a peer-reviewed quarterly publication of the Center for Media & Peace Initiatives. The Journal of Media & Public Policy seeks to serve as a resource for journalists and public administrators around the world. In collaboration with universities and organizations, the Journal of Media & Public Policy provides the interconnection between media and public policy through research and commentary. It promotes research in social science, celebrates interdisciplinary study, and facilitates discussion around specific subject areas, with the goal of generating new knowledge and understanding, forging, and expanding new international, intercultural, interdisciplinary research networks, and partnerships. In this issue, our contributors try to sketch out ways ahead. James Cockayne, Director, Centre for Policy Research at United Nations University explores the implications of living in the misinformation age, Jay Hauben of Columbia University makes a case for a new journalism anchored on netizen reporting that holds the media accountable to the people. Drissa Kone seeks more intercultural communication to diffuse intolerance and misunderstanding between the Muslim world and United States and other western countries while Edmond Doua examines communication and political ideologies in Africa.
