The core members include all research faculty members of the Department of Media and Communication, a strong international team of scholars who have continuously been receiving grants from various funding sources. With different professional and academic backgrounds, all core members are at the forefront of research and publication in International Communication, Media Effects, New Media, Communication for Social Change, and Political Economy of the Media.
