Conflict Management, Dialogue and Reader Engagement in the New Media Landscape
The project is based on challenge-driven innovation and is financed externally by Vinnova. The focus of the first stage is to develop the project's idea and innovation and simultaneously plan how the innovation should be developed, tested and spread for value-creating use. The first stage also involves enhancement of the actual need analysis and the subsequent addition of more partners in the next stage.
The project's partners are the media corporations Direktpress, Ifrågasätt, RISE Interactive, Södertörn University and Medier & demokrati. The approach is to develop a creative journalistic dialogue platform – in order to be able to build a prototype in the next stage – where journalism and forms of discussion contribute to greater constructiveness and less polarisation.
The project runs from April 2019 to the end of December 2019.
