Valuable and Principled Journalism
Within the research centre, journalism is regarded as a way to serve the public. Journalists give their public insight into political, economic and socio-cultural conditions and developments. This allows citizens to make better choices in personal and social matters. They encourage institutions and individuals to be socially accountable. In this way, they strengthen democratic culture, but journalism also has significance in everyday life. For instance, solution-oriented framing of the news, a future-oriented perspective and a greater public focus are qualities that contribute to promoting involvement, commitment and overall well-being in society.
