The Nexus of Media, Information, and Humanitarian Crisis
"Information bestows power; at risk communities need information as much as water, food and medicine or shelter."
-- Markku Niskala, Secretary General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)
The International Journal of Media and Information Policy (MIPJ) seeks to better examine and define the stakeholders, motivations, uses, and parameters of information--its role and its implications in the international sphere: how it is gathered, analyzed, and disseminated; via what medium; to what population; and for what purpose -- and the role such information and its means--and immediacy of dissemination--play as critical stakeholders in both the microcosm and macrocosm of humanitarian and international affairs.
