Project
This research project aims to understand editorial texts as a particular dimension able to reveal newspapers as political actors. We hold that editorials are one of the essential elements for disclosing how newspapers manifest their political interests. We pose three main research questions: 1) What are the main production routines influencing the construction of editorial opinions?; 2) To what extent are the criteria of editorial-worthiness – proposed in parallel with the notion of newsworthiness – useful in explaining how news organizations express their views on public issues?; 3) How important are editorials in highlighting the political stances and interests of journalistic organizations? One holds that studying these three dimensions can provide an original contribution to research in journalism theory and political journalism – while focusing on a multidisciplinary perspective involving other areas of the Humanities, such as Political Science and the Political Economy of Communication.
Project
The research agenda on digital democracy has now focused on investigating practical experiences and projects aimed at solving problems, rather than developing theoretical-philosophical models associated with the digitalization of democratic processes. Taking this point of departure, the present research project proposes a comparative analysis to understand how government institutions build and disseminate discourses on social media. In order to do this, we take into account categories concerning Democratic Theory, Organizational Communication, and Public Governance to evaluate how the organizational and political contexts of both countries influence the discourses of oficial institutions on social media.
Project
Based on the findings already described in our previous projects, the objective of the research here proposed is to elaborate an overview of (a) the main theoretical aspects and (b) the practical initiatives and applications that characterize the phenomenon of online communication as a tool and as an environment aimed to improve political transparency. Since studies in the area of Digital Democracy are find themselves in a more mature stage compared to what we had in the mid-2000s, it is fundamental to deepen the understanding of agendas and principles that have not yet been adequately explored in the Brazilian case. This approach allows adopting a theoretical-methodological perspective that can be able to measure, for example, the influence of regulatory frameworks and political culture on e-Transparency projects, emphasizing a comparative dimension. Since the case studies proposed here (a set of Executive, Legislative and Judicial bodies, operating at the municipal, state, and federal levels) comprise distinct branches of the Republic (with distinguishable purposes, structures and willingness to develop mechanisms of digital transparency), the following hypotheses are presented: H1) There are substantially different patterns of adoption of digital media by state institutions regarding e-Transparency; H2) The disclosure of such information is unequal both by the managers' political interests and by organizational and bureaucratic elements typical of each instance; H3) Inside each administrative instance, there is a dispute between agents from the political field/elected representatives and career employees/officials about how much it should be revealed to the public (observing the legal limits, of course); H4) Population size and degree of socioeconomic development are associated with the sophistication gradient of e-Transparency resources in each case examined; H5) Legislation is a fundamental element that constrains institutions and agents of public administration to adopt e-Transparency mechanisms. Through documental (norms published by different instances that integrate the bureaucratic structure of the State), bibliographical (updated literature on the conceptual and empirical stage), and legislative (current legal framework and proposals being processed within the Legislative Branch) researches; by collecting data from different experiences of e-Transparency (encompassing the design and the comprehensiveness of the tools); by aggregating variables from the databases of IPEA and IBGE (socio-political/ demographic/economic information on each locality covered by the e-Transparency initiative, in order to compare the variables); and through interviews with Congressmen and managing authorities, we aim to consider the data necessary for analysis through quantitative and qualitative techniques. This will make it feasible to understand the means and ways of using online political communication resources, as well as to collaborate (as a mechanism of transferring results) to improve democratic practices by strengthening social control of the public administration.
