Is There Any Future for Research on the Mediatization of Politics?

This chapter presents a multidimensional framework for research into the mediatization of politics. We propose to study the mediatization of politics as a transformation process that is not limited to mutual relations between media and politics but also includes the audience and market institutions. Such a conceptual rebuilding captures the process of mediatization of politics on three social levels: (1) on a macro level, the mediatization is interrelated with other meta-processes, such as marketization and acculturation; (2) meso level grasps an institutional process where games of powers and flows of logics between political, media, social and cultural institutions take place; (3) micro level describes the politics-related media practices of society. This framework is presented on a case study of the Committee for the Defence of Democracy social movement.
