In this week’s episode Luzia Helfer outlines her clever experiments on the relationship between politicians and journalists  – one of mutual dependence and wariness.LH2

Luzia has taken a novel approach to the topic by running carefully designed experiments with real politicians and political journalists. She has focussed on discovering what features of politician’s messages secure media coverage, and what aspects of news stories prompt politicians to take action. Some of the results may surprise you.

Luzia is in the final stages of her doctorate in political science at the University of Leiden, and is a regular visitor with the University of Antwerp’s Media, Movements and Politics research group.
