2021

During the first stage of the THREATPIE project (WP2), we have conducted 14 focus group interviews and 42 in-depth interviews in Germany, Spain, Poland, the UK, and Romania. These data allow us to identify the aspects of political news supply and demand that are important to citizens. These data also inform the work in the following thematic work-packages. Their data gathering activities are planned to be fielded in the first half of 2022.
