Introduction
My research interests include Political Communication, Interest Groups Politics, Civil Society and the Public Sphere, Political Journalism, Media Framing, and Environmental Communication. My main focus is on comparative research: at the University of Mannheim I have worked on a cross-country comparison of media coverage of climate change; at the University of Exeter I have worked as part of an international team that investigated interest group agendas in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, and the US.

This paper presents the first fully integrated analysis of multimodal news frames. A standardized content analysis of text and images in newspaper articles from Brazil, Germany, India, South Africa, and the United States covering the United Nations (UN) Climate Change Conferences 2010–2013 was conducted using a subset of photo-illustrated articles...

This paper presents a multimodal research design for the standardized content analysis of climate change coverage in print media. The concepts of framing, narration, and visual representation are integrated into a single coding instrument that can be applied to large-scale media samples from different countries. The proposed research design combine...
Article

This study examines the interrelations between journalists and communication practitioners from environmental NGOs. Taking the annual UN climate change conferences as a case in point we show that the exceptional circumstances of these events foster a temporary blurring of the professional boundaries between both actor groups that partly results in...
Article
The annual Climate Change Conferences (COPs) held under the auspices of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are global staged political media events that regularly provide occasions for contesting the framing of global warming in media coverage around the globe. This study assesses which professional group involved in...
Article
Full-text available
The government of the UK is reputed to be among the world’s most transparent governments. Yet in comparison with many other countries, its 5-year-old register of lobbyists provides little information about the lobbying activity directed at the British state. Further, its published lists of meetings with government ministers are vague, delayed, and...
Article
Full-text available
Research has shown how unpremeditated events can influence media attention and media framing. But how do staged political events influence patterns of news coverage across countries, and are such changes sustainable beyond the immediate event context? We examined whether the UN climate change conferences are conducive to an emergence of a transnati...

After the article was submitted for review, we continued improving the data. We performed a second attempt to merge groups in the lobby register with groups mentioned in ministerial meetings reports.
Article
Full-text available
Journalist-source relationships and interactions are interpreted in this study as crucial mechanisms for linking different arenas in a deliberative system. To unravel these source networks, 106 semi-standardized interviews with journalists as well as PR professionals from government delegations and NGOs were conducted on-site three UN climate chang...
Article
Full-text available
Current studies of political communication offer valuable contributions to assessing and measuring mediated deliberation. But in our understanding of the news media's role in a deliberative system a number of questions remain unanswered, especially concerning problems posed by social complexity. This paper aims to contribute to closing this gap by...
Article
This study disentangles national and transnational influences on international journalism by distinguishing convergent issue framing from nationally specific narrative in news texts. In a comparative quantitative content analysis of the newspaper coverage in five democratic countries (Brazil, Germany, India, South Africa, and USA) during four UN cl...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
When fighting broke out in the region of Darfur in Western Sudan in 2003 and quickly turned into a humanitarian crisis of enormous scope, the American mass media was very slow to react. Using Anthony Downs’ classic model of the issue attention cycle as a theoretical foundation, the author examines the course of attention the New York Times and the...

Project
This project integrates two research perspectives on the emergence of cross-border media debates that have remained unconnected so far: research on the attention-grabbing characteristics of global media events on the one hand and research on longer-term shifts in the parameters of media debates on the other. Thus, the project investigates (a) how staged global political media events (i.e. the United Nations climate conferences in 2012 and 2013) are produced, and (b) which discursive effects these events have on national climate debates in the media of five leading democratic countries around the world, namely Germany, the U.S., India, South Africa and Brazil.

Project
Agendas and Interest Groups is a cross-country comparative research project that for the first time will address concerns about the role of interest group influence by focusing attention on policy agendas and analyzing the circumstances under which specific types of groups and citizens find their issues represented before government. To estimate the degree of congruence between the concerns of citizens and the policy agendas of interest groups and government, we will interview representatives from a random sample of 100 interest groups in each of four countries (Germany, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, United States). In addition, we will survey the general public in each country about their policy wishes, and track three specific issues in each of three policy areas in each country. In mapping each country’s public, group, and government agendas, we aim to address normatively important questions about the extent and causes of inequalities in representation.
