International collaborators

We welcome opportunities to work with researchers, organisations and students from across the world.

We place great importance on establishing and maintaining strong links with prestigious international research organisations. From cutting-edge research and analysis to expert advice, there are several ways we can work with you.

Global Media Studies Initiative

In 2016 colleagues from the CRCC and the Global Media Studies Initiative based in the Department of Communication Studies at University of Michigan, launched the Global Media Studies Initiative.

This network is developing innovative cross-disciplinary communications research and providing a global hub for the exploration of media, communications and culture in an international context.

Through workshops, symposia, and collaborative projects, our goal is to both build on and diversify this network of communications scholars to develop cutting edge research on global media, communications and culture.


Through the Erasmus scheme, we have long-standing links with a wide range of leading media, communications and social sciences departments in universities across Europe, including:

  • University of Tampere, Finland
  • Charles University Prague, Czech Republic
  • Université de Paris XII, France
  • University of Milan, Italy
  • University of Minho, Portugal
