Información y participación política: Conferencia europea en Leeds

Justo después de las Elecciones Europeas de junio de 2009, en las que se alcanzó un nuevo récord de abstención e incrementaron su representación partidos extremistas de toda condición, académicos de toda Europa se han citado en Leeds (Reino Unido) para el 17 y 18 de septiembre de 2009, a fin de estudiar la relación entre información y participación política durante la campaña europea.

La conferencia está organizada por la sección de Comunicación Política de ECREA (European Communication Research and Education Association), y dos de los centros de investigación de la Universidad de Leeds, el Centre for Digital Citizenship y el Jean Monnet European Centre of Excellence, ambos con sede en el Institute of Communications Studies. La lección magistral correrá a cargo de Peter Dahlgren, de la Universidad de Lund (Suecia).

A continuación reproducimos el programa preliminar de la conferencia. La fecha límite para matricularse a precio reducido es el 15 de agosto de 2009. Más información en la web del simposio.
