Scientists from various disciplines are conducting research on the topics Internet and Democracy at the DIID:

  • How is digitization changing communication in different areas of society?
  • How can online applications be used and designed to enhance democratic participation and collaborative decision-making?
  • How can participatory online communication be structured, analyzed and protected against manipulation?
  • Which democratically destructive forces are at work and how can conflicts be resolved online?

These and other questions motivate our projects. You can read more about the research results in our DIID Précis or see the publications of our members.
