Covid-19 and the media: devastation or renaissance?

The Media for Democracy Monitor (MDM) is a research project on the performance of the media with regard to democracy.

In 2011, communication and political scientists from 10 countries delivered a state-of-the art report, based on relevant indicators.

In 2021, the MDM publishes a new edition, applying these indicators to 18 countries over the decade of media digitalization (2010 to 2020). The Dutch Journalism Fund supports the project.

The Euromedia Research Group is the academic host of the MDM project, which is coordinated and managed by Josef Trappel, Professor for Media Policy and Media Economics, at the University of Salzburg.
