Research on constructive journalism and social development

  Constructive Journalism, as a news philosophy and practice, is emerging within the domain of journalism, along with the development of new media in recent years. Far from the concept of traditional journalism, constructive journalism explores a rigorous reporting about responses to social problems for their available solutions applied to social governance, and the media more importantly dig into developing solutions as well as make joint efforts with the government to tackle many problems facing the society.
