It surveys the status quo and trends of strategic communication, public relations and communication management across East, South and South-East Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Topics covered include the future relevance of mass media, communciation channels, social media skilles, measurement and evaluation, job satisfaction, and characteristics of excellent communication departments.
Living up to highest academic standards, the Asia-Pacific Communciation Monitor has been conducted by a research team of professors from leading international universities, headed by Jim Macnamara (Sydney), May O. Lwin (Singapore), Ana Adi and Ansgar Zerfass (Leipzig).
The Monitor is jointly organised by the Asia-Pacific Association of Communication Directors (APACD), Quadriga University of Applied Sciences and the European Public Relations Education and Research Association (EUPRERA), supported by PRIME Research International, a global leader in strategic communication research.
The Asia-Pacific Communication Monitor uses a similar methodology as the European Communication Monitor and the Latin-American Communication Monitor, making it part of the largest study in the field of strategic communication worldwide.
