A Handbook on Constructive Journalism

A new handbook by IMS and Constructive Institute offers a how-to of best practices on constructive journalism.

The unique strength of constructive journalism is that it complements the reporter’s vital role of “watchdog” by promoting democratic conversation and suggesting solutions to problems. The manner of reporting is focused on overemphasising the negative and what is going wrong. Instead, constructive journalism aims to provide audiences with a fair, accurate and contextualised picture of the world by building on the idea that journalism is a feedback mechanism that provides suggestions and alternatives to help society self-correct.

IMS and Constructive Institute are working together to introduce media partners interested in learning more about this solution-oriented journalism. For more information, please contact hwa@mediasupport.org or hgr@mediasupport.org.
