Resilient Media for Democracy in the Digital Age (ReMeD)

About the project

ReMeD aims to provide academic knowledge and policy solutions that foster a healthy relationship between media and democracy, which includes tackling issues such as dis- and misinformation, decline of the economic base of traditional media, and negative effects of social media platforms on the hybrid media system.

  1. Eroding trust in democratic institutions
