In recent years, digitalization has emerged as a research topic at the Institute for Social Research, and a wide range of projects have been implemented with digitalization as the common denominator.
The broadly defined research topic digitalization has emerged in recent years at the Institute for Social Research, in collaboration between political scientists, sociologists and media scholars.
The topic combines research on how political parties, politicians and governments communicate in public with research on citizens' attitudes and participation in politics and civil society.
The process of digitalization plays a key role in several of the projects, and the topic also includes specific studies of media and media systems within a globalised and digitised context. The topic also covers projects on communication and governance in ministries, both internally and externally.
