DFG establishes 9 new research units
Date:2/11/2011

us of the "Politische Kommunikation in der Online-Welt" ["Political Communication in the Online World"] Research Unit is both a dynamic and politically and socially significant one. This team of German and Swiss communication researchers will examine how open communication between citizens, political organisations and media has changed through the advent of the now omnipresent online media, such as online newspapers, search engines, video portals, social networks and blogs. This is linked to the issue of the political consequences of these changes the effect they have had on voters' political preferences, for example, or on the structures of political organisations. In order to answer these key questions, the Research Unit wants to perform empirical research using panel studies to examine the changes in political communication. The group also intends to examine and link what have, until now, been separate theoretical approaches to online communication. Examining a range of individual projects will, after all, illuminate the connections between communication changes, media changes and political changes from different perspectives.

Rice cultivation is tremendously significant, not only in feeding the world's population, but also from an environmental perspective. The new Research Unit, which is known as "Introducing Non-Flooded Crops in Rice-Dominated Landscapes" will use modern molecular, pedological and plant physiological methods to study the environmental consequences of current and future changes in rice cultivation in large areas of Southeast Asia. In doing so, the group will pay particular attention to the effects modified rice cultivation systems have on the biogeochemical carbon and nitrogen cycles, on the emission of greenhouse gases and on the water balance. The team will gain impetus from cooperation with the International Rice Research
