Changing media, changing democracy

Both national democracies and mass media have been changing fundamentally in recent decades. Two important sources of change are globalization and the internet. One of the key arenas has been the specific interplay between the media and the political process.

The aim of the Modinet research network is to describe and interpret this development by combining media studies and social sciences in new ways.

The network will present most of its findings during the fall of 2005. In the process, about 50 researchers will contribute to the understanding of mediated democracy. List of participating institutions.
