Media Systems and Communication Cultures in Indonesia

Kai Hafez: In the context of globalization, it makes sense to do research on structural similarities and differences of media systems extending it beyond the usual nationally oriented comparative media systems research. In different regions of the world, transformations often take place with a time lag and a shift in context, but they are similar in structure. The aim of the project is to increase the theoretical and prognostic quality with regard to the participating media systems by means of most different comparisons between Germany and Indonesia.
