Shrinking World Post

In parts of the British press foreign coverage has fallen by almost 40% since 1979, now making up only just over a tenth of stories in the paper. In an increasingly globalised world how can this decline be explained? Does it matter? Is a new foreign news ecology emerging?

This report, the first of its kind on foreign reporting in the UK press, analyses how coverage of the world had changed over the last 30 years in four UK national newspapers, and explores what implications this has for how we get our foreign news in the future.
