The Routledge Handbook of Developments in Digital Journalism Studies offers a unique and authoritative collection of essays that report on and address the significant issues and focal debates shaping the innovative field of digital journalism studies. In the short time this field has grown, aspects of journalism have moved from the digital niche to the digital mainstay, and digital innovations have been ‘normalized’ into everyday journalistic practice. These cycles of disruption and normalization support this book’s central claim that we are witnessing the emergence of digital journalism studies as a discrete academic field. Essays bring together the research and reflections of internationally distinguished academics, journalists, teachers, and researchers to help make sense of a reconceptualized journalism and its effects on journalism’s products, processes, resources, and the relationship between journalists and their audiences. The handbook also discusses the complexities and challenges in studying digital journalism and shines light on previously unexplored areas of inquiry such as aspects of digital resistance, protest, and minority voices. The Routledge Handbook of Developments in Digital Journalism Studies is a carefully curated overview of the range of diverse but interrelated original research that is helping to define this emerging discipline. It will be of particular interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students studying digital, online, computational, and multimedia journalism.

This volume sets out the state-of-the-art in the discipline of journalism at a time in which the practice and profession of journalism is in serious flux. While journalism is still anchored to its history, change is infecting the field. The profession, and the scholars who study it, are reconceptualizing what journalism is in a time when journalists no longer monopolize the means for spreading the news. Here, journalism is explored as a social practice, as an institution, and as memory. The roles, epistemologies, and ethics of the field are evolving. With this in mind, the volume revisits classic theories of journalism, such as gatekeeping and agenda-setting, but also opens up new avenues of theorizing by broadening the scope of inquiry into an expanded journalism ecology, which now includes citizen journalism, documentaries, and lifestyle journalism, and by tapping the insights of other disciplines, such as geography, economics, and psychology. The volume is a go-to map of the field for students and scholars—highlighting emerging issues, enduring themes, revitalized theories, and fresh conceptualizations of journalism.

In this timely book, leading researchers consider how media inform democracy in six countries – the United States, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden. Taking as their starting point the idea that citizens need to be briefed adequately with a full and intelligent coverage of public affairs so that they can make responsible, informed choices rather than act out of ignorance and misinformation, contributors use a comparative approach to examine the way in which the shifting media landscape is affecting and informing the democratic process across the globe. In particular, they ask: Can a comparative approach provide us with new answers to the question of how media inform democracy? Has increased commercialization made media systems more similar and affected equally the character of news and public knowledge throughout the USA and Europe? Is soft news and misinformation predominantly related to an American exceptionalism, based on the market domination of its media and marginalized public broadcaster? This study combines a content analysis of press and television news with representative surveys in six nations. It makes an indispensable contribution to debates about media and democracy, and about changes in media systems. It is especially useful for media theory, comparative media, and political communication courses.

At the conclusion of the UN decade for women (1975 - 1985), the first international women's conference on African soil was held in Nairobi, Kenya. This conference presented an opportunity for new forms of organizing, that would more clearly and for the first time, be informed by the agendas of women from the South. Dubbed the Third World Conference on Women, the Nairobi conference was held on 15-26 June 1985. Close to 1,500 official delegates from 150 countries participated in the meeting, with another 15,000 women attending a parallel NGO forum. The parallel NGO Forum generated new strategies, for addressing the needs of women at all levels of society. Fundamentally, the Nairobi conference resulted in the development of the "Forward Looking Strategies for the advancement of Women" which were intended to be a practical and effective guide for global action to promote greater equality and opportunity for women. Taking the lead in 2006, the National Commission on Gender and Development, in partnership with women's organizations and development partners led the "Nairobi +21" process, a series of events and activities which were designed to offer a critical space for the reflection on the commitments of the Nairobi Forward Looking Strategies (NFLS) and the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA). This then culminated in the Nairobi Conference held on 27 October 2006, which was a commemoration of the Nairobi Forward Looking Strategy. This publication documents the landmark meeting for women in Africa and the rest of the world, particularly focusing on how far "Nairobi +21" has invigorated and transformed gender issues on the continent. Importantly, it captures milestones that will continue to encourage women in their quest for gender equality. Further, it reiterates the enduring priorities of engagement for gender equality that include political and economic empowerment for women, peace and security for development, ending violence against women, addressing socio-cultural norms that constrain women's lives, and increasing women's participation in key decision-making environments. Gender equality is officially on the agenda of most governments. What is now needed is for governments to respond more positively in a structured way by establishing stronger institutional mechanisms, with stature and resources equal to the task of addressing the goals of gender equality and women's empowerment.
