Political Communication


Click to view division website

Political Communication is concerned with the interplay of communication and politics, including the transactions that occur among citizens, between citizens and their governments, and among officials within governments.

The plurality of this substantive focus is similarly reflected in the rich variance of theoretical perspectives and methodological orientations of Division members. These research interests are pursued, moreover, within individual political communities and across communities comparatively.

The Division regularly publishes the journal Political Communication and the newsletter Political Communication Report. ICA members can access the journal directly through the Members Only section of the ICA web site.
