At DEMICOM, we conduct research on democracy and communication in the digital community. The research is interdisciplinary and it includes research groups and projects that integrate and deal with media development, organizational and strategic Communication, as well as political communication, journalism and photojournalism.

The DEMICOM research centre at Mid Sweden University, was founded in 2006. DEMICOM’s work is led by a steering group and the daily business is led by a Director, currently Professor Ingela Wadbring. The research activities include research assignments, externally granted research projects, investigations, counselling and education.  Most analyses deal with the situation in Sweden, but our researchers cooperate to a great extent with international researchers in research networks. DEMICOM publications include peer-reviewed articles, books and book chapters in English and Swedish, as well as a reports series in Swedish, where the results of the different projects are published continuously.
