The Guardian Foundation & Social Sciences Association of Norway
MEDAR has been in partnership with The Guardian Foundation and Social Sciences Association of Norway since 2017. Through this partnership a research study on “Professional Journalists’ Perception of Citizen Journalism” has been conducted.
The fieldwork of this research study had been conducted between February-May 2018 in Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Diyarbakır, Adana and Antalya with a total of 306 journalists who are either news-curators (editors & correspondents) or executives (chief editors & management) operating in national and regional media organs. The initial findings have been announced in July 2018 at Istanbul Cezayir Meeting Hall with a press conference and the Turkish version of the report has been published as a book by Kafka Publishing in December 2018 as part of Alternative Media & Social Movements Series.
