Political Communication: Nordic Perspectives (programme option)
The programme option Political Communication: Nordic perspectives focuses on the interplay between politicians, citizens and the media, providing knowledge about key theories and findings in the research field of political communication as it relates to the Nordic region.
Political Communication: Nordic perspectives is an intensive, two-year exploration of issues in political communication in this particular region.
The field of political communication has enjoyed rapid growth through the last decades. The rise of new media and new technologies have changed the way we communicate and altered the public sphere in many ways.
Nordic countries are known to have one of the most advanced democracy models in the world, also known as the Nordic model, due to high level of political engagement and voter turnout, freedom of expression and media freedom. For example, Norwegian media still enjoy a great deal of economic support provided by the government. In addition, Nordic countries have the highest percentage of population using advanced new media technologies. All this makes the Nordic region an interesting case for studies related to political communication.
How does this situation influence the power relations in the modern society? Do politicians need media to reach people? How shall we know what is the “truth”? Can we vote with “likes” on Facebook? These and many other questions will be addressed during the programme.
