Sub-department Prof. Wessler

Professor Hartmut Wessler’s research team specializes in analyzing political communication in online and offline media as well as in cross-border communication. A recurring theme relates to the possibilities of assessing the quality of mediated contestation against diverging normative models of democracy. The team is particularly interested in how the theory of deliberative democracy can be amended to accomodate today's diversified and globalized communication system.
