Political communication

22-23 March 2021 | Skills training

In modern democracies, political communication constitutes a key resource and necessity for political institutions, the private sector and civil society. What matters, however, is not only what but how one communicates. Focusing on mass as well as digital communication, this course will introduce key concepts, trends and practical skills in a highly interactive and reflective mode. Strategic principles and practices, i.e. campaigning, framing, social media strategy, crisis communication, etc., are taught in the context of concrete examples and case studies.  

This course enables students to understand the interplay/interdependencies between media, politics and citizens and prepare for media appearances and public speaking. It conveys key concepts such as the public sphere, media democracy and citizen engagement and combines them with practical experience and training.
