The Cox Center conducts and supports research for its mission to empower communication and media insights worldwide. Our research efforts promote free and independent media systems around the world and ascertain the vital roles of communication in all aspects of business and society. These efforts have continuously provided insights into and intelligence on media and communication in the ever-changing media environment.
Topics have included the roles of the media in democratization, international news coverage structure, and the U.S. labor market in journalism and mass communication. Recent projects have expanded the capacity of the Cox Center through interdisciplinary projects examining how communication phenomena such as advertising, public relations, entertainment, sports, and marketing communications through new and emerging media impact audience perceptions, opinions, and behaviors.
As such, the Cox Center’s research continues to produce insights into how people communicate with organizations, businesses, and their societies. This has also unveiled an understanding of how – inversely – organizations, businesses, and societies communicate with people. Recent research projects conducted, presented at international conferences, or published by researchers at the Cox Center and their collaborators through the support of the Cox Center can be found on the news pages.
The findings and insights from the research are then shared through publications, presentations at conferences, and experiential seminars for the visiting researchers and fellows, including the CAM Fellows.
