Longitudinal and/or cross-national comparisons

* of the behavior or attitudes of political actors, for example different aspects of political campaigning and of public sector organizations communication (such as governments, parliaments, etc.)

* of the behavior or attitudes of media actors, for example the media coverage of politics and election campaigns.

* of the behavior or attitudes of citizens as they relate to political communication institutions, actors or processes, for example their levels of political knowledge and participation.

* on the relationships between political institutions and actors; media institutions and actors; and the citizenry.

Further, we look for papers that longitudinally or cross-nationally

* address the impact of system-level factors on political communication processes, behaviors, attitudes or linkages.
