Medborgarkulturer via medierna: en förutsättning för demokrati

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

Democracy all too often is described in terms of an abstract system, and the role of the media is to provide information for citizens. While is true, it is only part of the story. This text makes the point that the media in democracies also need to help generate civic cultures that can foster civic agency. Thus, the media's role must be understood even in terms of everyday civic socialization.
