1 May 2009
Professor Paul Statham of the Department of Sociology and Director of the International Network for European Political Communications has been awarded a Research Professorship by the WZB Social Science Research Center in Berlin.
This period of dedicated research time will allow him to complete the manuscript of a volume entitled The Making of a European Public Sphere. Political Communication and Collective Action in an Era of European Governance that is due to be published by Cambridge University Press. This research on the transformation of political communication in response to European integration was originally funded through a grant from the European Union for a project that Professor Statham co-directed with Professor Ruud Koopmans, Director of the MIT unit at WZB.
