Digital citizenship

Research Group 13

Many forms of political action beyond voting are spreading in the online world. Nevertheless we know very little about whether or how openness for alternative forms of political engagement may change what people expect from democracy and how they assess it. As a member of our research team, you will join us in studying emerging citizen norms under conditions of digitization and how these norms affect individual political participation and expression of opinion under turbulent conditions (e.g., hate speech, incivility).
