"The Media Research Hub is part of the SSRC's Necessary Knowledge for a Democratic Public Sphere program, which works to ensure that debates about media and communications technologies are shaped by high-quality research and a rich understanding of the public interest.

The program is premised on the belief that good public policy and an inclusive democracy flourish in a rich knowledge environment, supported by broad-based research capacities and access to data. To this end program focuses on building a stronger culture of collaboration between scholars, advocates, practitioners, and policymakers in the field. It works to make the field 'better' at producing research and bringing it effectively to bear."
