Research Focus "Communication, Media and Politics"


Welcome to the Webpages of the Research Focus “Communication, Media and Politics”!

The research group analyses the mediation, perception and processing of politically relevant discourses. Therefore traditional political communication research is complemented by aspects of individual perception and processing of political information as well as communication with new interactive media. To reach this aim, researchers from political science, communication research and psychology cooperate closely and also collaborate with computer scientists from the Koblenz campus. The research group is funded by the research initiative of Rhineland-Palatinate.
