Roundtable on media and public policy

Is serious journalism still possible? Or does the rise of new media and the decline of legacy media organizations spell the end of in-depth reporting on Canadian public policy? The Public Policy Forum is exploring these questions with award-winning journalist Madelaine Drohan, our 2015 Prime Ministers of Canada Fellow and correspondent for The Economist. To gather a broad range of perspectives, the Forum is conducting cross-country roundtables with journalists, policymakers, academics and private-sector leaders, as well as numerous one-on-one interviews. This research will culminate in a final report that will be available on the Forum’s website in early 2016.
