“Digital Media and Political Engagement Worldwide”

A Comparative Study Edited by Eva Anduiza, Michael James Jensen, and Laia Jorba Communication, Society, and Politics

“Understanding how digital media are affecting the dynamics of citizens’ engagement has become the holy grail of political communication research.  Bringing together research conducted by nineteen international scholars in fifteen different countries, Digital Media and Political Engagement Worldwide brings us closer to this goal by comparatively exploring the variety of pathways through which digital media influence political engagement; who is most likely to engage politics through digital media and how this choice results from the interaction of individual characteristics and differences in the nature of online and offline politics; and the sociopolitical contexts in which digital politics occurs.”
