The Children’s Media Foundation

Academic Advisory Board

The CMF Academic Advisory Board brings together the key UK experts in various disciplines of academic research into children and media.

The Academic Board advises the CMF on policy, feeds research information into our publications and events, and informs our dealings with policy-makers, the press and parents, as part of our mission to improve the public discourse around children and media in the UK.
