The CAMRI Policy Observatory aims to amplify the impact of our research on policy debates and developments nationally, internationally and globally. The Observatory engages in outreach, networking and publication activities, seeking to establish links with a variety of policymakers and stakeholders, including civil society, media organisations, politicians and government officials.

The Observatory focuses on the themes that the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI) specialises in, ranging from communication policy to our work on multiculturalism, immigration and the refugee crisis, the political economy of digital media companies, civic engagement and activist communities, the internet of things, digital surveillance, media and development, and children’s media in the Arab world. The Observatory also draws on our expertise in media and communication research across Europe, China, Africa, Latin America and the Arab world, offering a broader perspective on policy debates in the UK and internationally.
