VIDEO: What is constructive journalism?

Liesbeth Hermans, Professor of Constructive Journalism at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, in the Netherlands, talked to us about her research paper presented at the NordMedia 2017 conference. She has done a theoretical study on constructive journalism, adding more academic background for the relatively new concept.

Hermans is interested in the depolarizing effects of constructive journalism, and plans to continue to research what makes an article constructive as well as looking at the professional, practical side of things.

The interview was filmed at the NordMedia 2017 conference in Tampere.
