4th Economics of Media Bias Workshop

Application Deadline

We invite researchers to submit papers or extended abstracts to the 4th Economics of Media Bias Workshop. Organized by the eponymous research network, the workshop will be a platform to discuss current research, exchange ideas, and explore new collaboration scenarios.

As a group of economists and political scientists, we investigate forms, causes, and consequences of media bias, especially in news markets. Main questions of interest are:

  • How can media bias be defined and measured?
  • In which situations is bias driven by the supply side of the news market? When is it caused by the demand side?
  • What are the economic and political consequences of media bias?

Keynote speeches will be delivered by Eliana La Ferrara (Bocconi) and Gregory Crawford (Zurich).

Submission:
Both theoretical and empirical work is welcome. Those interested in presenting their work at this workshop are invited to email a research paper or extended abstract to Jil Soerensen
