How do global transformations affect democratic politics?

What is the role of the media in the transformation of contemporary democracies? Why do economic activities result in global and national financial crises and inequality instead of stability and democratisation? How does governance affect organisations and communication, and how do governance and organisations structure communication and political and economic activity?

In the Master's Programme in Global Politics and Communication, you study a cutting-edge combination of political science, communication studies and global political economy. You apply ideas, concepts and methodologies to key societal and political issues and develop your critical reasoning and argumentation skills.

The Master's degree programme has three study tracks: Governance, Organisations and Communication; Media and Democracy; and Global Political Economy. Find out more about the programme structure, content and courses from the link below.
