The future of quality journalism and healthy democracy are inextricably linked. In the era of fake news, there are signs of profound stress and strain within each of these spheres. In his inaugural lecture, Professor Adrian Hadland considers the state of journalism and of democracy and ponders the future of both.

Professor Adrian Hadland was a professional, political journalist for 15 years before switching at first into policy-oriented work on behalf of South Africa’s fledgeling democratic administration and then to teaching and research. He has published 20 books on a wide variety of topics from biographies and children’s books to academic monographs on media-state relations in the 21st Century. Currently Adrian is Head of the Division of Communications, Media & Culture at the University of Stirling and Professor of Media Studies and Journalism.
