Project description

My project deals with communication in Swedish municipalities. I am particularly interested in how municipalities work with dialogic and digital communication. In the project, among other things I delve into how municipal communication activities are structured and how municipalities use platforms such as Facebook and democracy-reinforcing initiatives such as citizen dialogues.
