Editors' Note
Forum: Mobilizing Media
The media play a powerful role in international politics. They not only shape the
public's perception of global events, but they also influence domestic and foreign
policy. The media can act as a potent tool in mobilizing governments to take action on
issues such as HIV/AIDS and humanitarian crises. At the same time, governments can
use media to get their political messages heard. Furthermore, the form and function
of media evolve with the advent of news blogging, which creates space for political
discourse and can be a means of mobilizing the masses. Public perceptions, politics,
and the press form a cycle of influence, as each puts pressure on the next. To this end,
our Forum explores the politics of the press.
