Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism Awarded Funding from the Open Society Institute

The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism has been awarded funding from the Open Society Institute Assistance Foundation for a project on ‘Mapping Russia’s Internet for Civil and Uncivil Society’.

The purpose of the grant was to provide support for a one-day workshop on 11 May 2007 on the methodology for examining the growth and use of the Russian Internet, specifically its role in hosting a range of political and social views not represented, or little represented in the mainstream media.

The workshop was attended by academics, journalists and several Internet experts from Russia.
