4th Economics of Media Bias Workshop
Over the past decade, economists have been working
increasingly on various kinds of biased coverage. The Research Network
Economics of Media Bias – which is funded by the German Research
Foundation (DFG) – brings together the different perspectives,
approaches, and methods that can be found in the area. Moreover, it aims
to support and integrate young researchers by connecting them with more
experienced economists. To discuss ideas and current research projects,
the network organizes annual workshops at alternating locations.
We invite researchers to submit papers or extended abstracts to the
4th Economics of Media Bias Workshop. Organized by the eponymous
research network, the workshop will be a platform to discuss current
research, exchange ideas, and explore new collaboration scenarios. As a group of economists and political scientists, we investigate forms,
causes, and consequences of media bias, especially in news markets.
Main questions of interest are:
- How can media bias be defined and measured?
- In which situations is bias driven by the supply side of the news market? When is it caused by the demand side?
- What are the economic and political consequences of media bias?
Keynote speeches will be delivered by Eliana La Ferrara (Bocconi) and Gregory Crawford (Zurich).
