RESILIENT MEDIA FOR DEMOCRACY IN THE DIGITAL AGE

Project description

When digital media strengthens democracy

Digital technologies are changing the world of media and the way the public is informed about news and current affairs. In turn, the digitalisation of media poses new challenges to democracy. However, a healthy relationship between media and democracy is possible. To improve relations between citizens, media and digital technologies, the EU-funded ReMeD project will implement an interdisciplinary approach and an innovative (qualitative and quantitative) methodology. The project will collect, analyse and compare data on professional journalists, alternative media content producers, and citizens operating in technologically mediated configurations and media organisations, market structures, and national and international regulations relative to media production, circulation, and consumption. ReMeD will involve stakeholders to co-produce high-impact solutions for media that strengthen democracy.

Objective

Resilient Media for Democracy in the Digital Age (ReMeD) responds to the European Commission’s call HORIZON-CL2-2022-DEMOCRACY-01-06: “Media for democracy – democratic media”, and will tackle existing challenges to a healthy relationship between media and democracy, by taking a bold approach to improve relations between citizens, media and digital technologies. With an interdisciplinary approach and an innovative methodology that combines qualitative and quantitative methods, ReMeD will gather, analyze, compare and contrast data on professional journalists, alternative media content producers and citizens operating in technologically mediated configurations, and on the media organizations, market structures and national and international regulations that underpin media production, circulation and consumption in the contemporary media landscape. ReMeD will work closely with all parties involved in order to co-produce high-impact knowledge and solutions that will contribute to the creation of resilient democratic media that reinvigorate, strengthen and uphold democracy, the rule of law and fundamental human rights. The project is particularly timely as ReMeD’s results and policy recommendations will feed directly into the contemporary debates around the design and implementation of the Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act.
