The DCU Institute Of Future Media, Democracy And Society (Fujo) is a multidisciplinary research centre focused on the digital transformation of media, democracy, and society. FuJo investigates how to counter digital pathologies including disinformation and digital hate; how to enhance public participation through democratic innovations; and how to secure the sustainability of high-quality journalism.

As an innovative and experimental space for journalism and media research, FUJO provides a platform where journalists, communication scholars, social and data scientists, software engineers and philosophers can come together. We will test thinking, create new formats, bounce new ideas and technologies and research best practice.

The Institute brings the experience and reach of DCU’s top rated School of Communications and Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences together with researchers from the DCU arms of the SFI research centres, the Insight Centre for Data Analytics and the ADAPT Centre for Content Creation, along with the Institute of Ethics and the Centre for Cloud Computing.

Led by Dr Jane Suiter (Director), members combine expertise in media and communications, political science, law and government, data science, and computer science. For an overview of FuJo members and their areas of expertise, please visit our members page.

Members work closely with national and international partners – across the academic, industry, NGO, and policy sectors – to develop research projects. For more information about FuJo research projects, please see our projects page.

FuJo is guided by a distinguished advisory board representing media, technology, and civil society. For an overview of FuJo advisory board members, please visit our advisory board page.
