Communication and media in war and crisis

About the project

This project focuses on crisis, war and communication, with a special focus on the use of social media. The research group is made up of political scientists with a focus on security studies and crisis management. A range of peer-reviewed articles have been published by the group. One article examines the significance of milblogs for national strategic narratives. Two articles focus on the Swedish Armed Forces' strategies for communication. Two additional articles examine European armed forces' views on social media use in national and international settings. In addition, the research group has launched a Master course on political communication in war and crisis relevant for students of political science and war studies.
