Crossing Boundaries in Crisis Communication, 3rd International Conference on Crisis Communication at the Beginning of the 21st Century

 

Hurricane Sandy, the earthquake and the following nuclear catastrophe in Japan 2011 or the Euro crisis have all shown that crises are increasingly crossing institutional, national and cultural boundaries and affect all important areas of society, ranging from politics to economics, religion and civil society. These developments underline the significance of research-based knowledge on their characteristics, societal impact, and management.

Entitled Crossing Boundaries in Crisis Communication, the Third International Conference on Crisis Communication at the Beginning of the 21st Century (funded by the German Research Foundation) will broaden the perspectives on crisis communication by discussing the theoretical, methodological, and practical implications of crises as well as the development of crisis communication as an interdisciplinary and intercultural field of study. The conference is hosted by the Ilmenau University of Technology and the International Research Group on Crisis Communication. The organizers are pleased to announce the Temporary Working Group on Crisis Communication at ECREA as a strong partner of this conference.

Date: October 2-5, 2013
Venue: ComCenter Brühl in Erfurt, Germany

Security-policy-communication 2.0

International Research Group on Crisis Communication from Imenau discusses chances and challenges of web 2.0 with communication officers of the German Federal Armed Forces.

Strausberg/Ilmenau. Which chances and challenges arise from the new functionalities of web 2.0 for the communication management in the sector of security policy? In December 2008 scholars and students from Ilmenau University as well as communication practitioners from the German Federal Armed Forces discussed this question at a symposium of the German Federal Armed Forces’ Academy for Information and Communication (AIK) in Strausberg. Chaired by IRGoCC director Martin Löffelholz this workshop allowed 40 participants to approach this topic from different theoretical and practical perspectives.

The cooperation between the AIK and the International Research Group on Crisis Communication (Ilmenau U of Tech.) is strongly related to the research project “security-policy-communication” and already lasts for three years now.
