The role of media coverage in the economic crisis

PhD Student: Alyt Damstra MSc

Alyt Damstra studies the role of economic news coverage during the financial crisis in the Netherlands. The PhD position is part of  the larger project ‘Media Coverage as a Catalyst for Economic Crises? Causes, Content and Consequences of Economic News Coverage’. The focus is on key actors trying to influence the news, the content of the news itself and the consequences of the coverage, for example the effects it  might or might not have on political party support. The project relies on a variety of advanced methods including content and time-series analyses.
