The research group EMPK deals with (public) communication about socially relevant problems. All phases of the communication process are important to investigate the phenomena, but the focus of the research group lies on the investigation of reception (media use and media effects) as well as on the analysis of media content.

We are currently working on five main topics:
1. Sustainability
2. Migration and Refuge
3. Issue Fatigue
4. Digitalization in Education
5. Communication as Reference to the World
