Political Competition and Media in Greece


The object of the course is the parallel investigation of political parties and media in Greece of the new regime and especially during the last twenty years. During this period, the media domination brought changes in party strategies and fueled the contemporary crisis of legitimacy and representation of political parties. The theoretical and empirical anatomy of the media and political parties relations is structured in three axes. The first relates to the consideration of theoretical issues in the relationship between media and political parties such as the effects of the media in the political field, the influencing of policy topics and the inclusion of policies in the communicative dynamics. The second is to explore the transformations of the field of political publicity during the last twenty years: the transformations of the MMC institutional framework, changes in readership rates and audience, publisher and political conflicts and the formation of Greek political agenda. The third axis has to do with the empirical investigation of the communication strategies of Greek governments of the last twenty years with reference to the governments of previous years. More specifically we will investigate the government and party communication practices during both the election campaigns and the everyday moments.
