Research Network Economics of Media Bias
Over the past decade, economists have been working increasingly on various kinds of biased coverage. The Research Network Economics of Media Bias – which was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) from 2016 to 2019 – brings together the different perspectives, approaches, and methods that can be found in the area. Moreover, it aims to support and integrate young researchers by connecting them with more experienced economists. To discuss ideas and current research projects, the network organizes annual workshops at alternating locations.
Do you actively research biased media coverage yourself?
