Is Global South science under-reported? All too often, in the ‘Global North’, we only hear about crises happening in lower income countries, rather than coverage of the critical research being undertaken by scientists in areas that are most relevant to them. Which fields in particular are under-reported, how, and why? How does the research ecosystem and its biases play a role in this?
In this session we will explore the assumptions of, and challenges faced by, journalists from both the North and South, and possible responses.
