Journalism and the Olympic Games

JOG: Journalism and the Olympic Games Research Group

    The JOG Group was established in 2005 to develop research into journalism, politics and the Olympic Games.

    This strategy covers the period 2006-2012 and co-ordinates a set of individual and collective projects during this period.

    The original core team involved six senior scholars in the area of media and sport from five different institutions.  

    This team was augmented in 2007 to enhance our international connections.

    The work of the JOG Group will commence with research and analysis of journalism during the build up to the Beijing Olympic Games of 2008, and continue through to the London Olympic Games of 2012.
