We work with partner groups and supporting individuals to produce research and to organise campaigning activities aimed at creating a media system that operates in the public interest. Explore

The Media Reform Coalition works with partner organisations and supporting individuals to fight for a democratic and accountable media system. Founded in 2011, the MRC has spent the last decade campaigning for a media that serves the interests of the public, not a handful of billionaires.

Our main activities are:

  • Research: We conduct research on media ownership and coverage, and the impacts of policy frameworks, to inform decision-makers and develop policy in the public interest.
  • Engagement: We engage our supporters and partners through meetings and events, including the annual Media Democracy Festival, and through blogs and our newsletter.
  • Campaigning: We work with partners to lobby decision-makers and mobilise the wider public around key questions of media ownership and accountability.
