Attitudes towards humanitarian news within the aid sector (Report)

In this short report, we examine how those involved with or interested in the aid sector view media coverage of humanitarian issues globally. What do they think of the ways in which mainstream and specialist news outlets cover humanitarian crises? What are their main sources of news and information and how useful do they find them? What impact, if any, does news coverage have on their work?

Our survey revealed multiple interesting trends and preferences amongst respondents. The most significant ones are listed below. The main implication is that our respondents want much more and bolder investigative reporting and more consistent expert analysis of humanitarian issues and crises, including analysis of the aid sector as a whole.
