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.
To pursue its goals, ReMeD will study and work closely with professional journalists, alternative media content producers and citizens operating in technologically mediated configurations.
The project has eight thematic case studies:
Subnational studies will be carried out in eight European countries: Spain, Germany, Austria, Norway, Ireland, Czechia, UK and Belgium.
UiA leads the work package on exploitation, impact scenarios and policy recommendations. This includes the creation of the ReMeD observatory digital platform highlighting key indicators and trends in media and democracy.
