Dr Jason Cabañes is Lecturer in International Communication at the School of Media and Communication, University of Leeds. One of his two key research interests is on the media’s role in the political and social development of countries in the Global South. In line with this interest, he has led research projects for The World Bank and, more recently, for World Press Photo. His other key research interest is on the media’s role in people’s experiences of migration and multiculturalism.
