Pacific Media Centre

AUT comms school denies sidelining Pacific Media Centre

The Centre's recently retired director David Robie has raised concern about the way AUT is handling the PM's leadership succession, as well as the removal of its physical office without a clear relocation.

Since its inception in 2007, the Pacific Media Centre has built an extensive body of work in regional journalism and media research.

But little over a month after David Robie retired as its director in December, he was sent photos of the PMC's office stripped of its theses, books, monographs, research journals, media outputs and other history.
