Project description

English EN

The global political power of images

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Imagine the effect of official photographs of world leaders meeting at a summit on global politics. These images shape international events and the public’s general understanding of current affairs when widely shared across the various social media channels. As regards relations between countries, images can feature the positive or negative dynamics. The EU-funded VISUAL project will investigate the role images play in global politics. It will also assess the role of gender in the visual politics of recognition. Using a case plus study method, the project will provide insight on how images can impact international relations.
