News & Media

CSMaP informs public policy with research on pressing topics, adds scientific rigor to media coverage, and convenes leading experts for urgent conversations. Our goal is to bridge the gap between that research and the wider world — and inform public discourse on how to move forward.

If you’re a reporter covering the intersection of social media and politics, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact our Communications Director Erik Opsal at
