Background information

Starting in 2019, the NEPOCS network fielded a comparative two-wave panel survey in 16 countries to investigate the effects of different conditions of the political information environment on the opinions, attitudes, knowledge, and behavior of citizens with regard to media and democracy. THREATPIE was initiated by NEPOCS members and builds on this prior research project.

The THREATPIE team consists of NEPOCS members and is completed with three Postdocs and two PhD-students (the “FabFive”).
