At Cartoon Movement we know (and it's our mission to convince you) that editorial cartoons are a serious form of journalism. With the project we're starting this week, Cartoon Movement is making its debut in the academic world.
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is undertaking a six-year research project on governance, security and justice in conflict-affected areas. The Cartoon Movement will support the academic research with editorial cartoons, using our global network of cartoonists to come up with powerful visuals on six themes:
These themes all have their own subroom within our main newsroom. Cartoon Movement will contribute 50 cartoons to the research project each year. This means we'll pick a cartoon from one of the LSE-subroom almost every week, which will be pulished on Cartoon Movement and be used to support the academic research done by LSE. You can help us decide which cartoons we should select by voting for the best submissions in our newsroom.
