Professor and Director of the Institute of Communication and Media Science

Silke Adam is professor for political communication and director of the Institute of Communication and Media Science at the University of Bern since 2010. Her research focuses on the questions of who is shaping political debates, how these debates look like, which role online communication plays and which effects such debates have on citizens. To answer these questions, she is working in two international comparative projects, financed by the Swiss National Funds („The Impact of challengers‘ online communication on media agenda-building – a comparison across countries and issues“; „The role of national parties for the politicization of EU integration - an international comparison between six European countries). These projects focus on the question of climate change and European integration.

Silke Adam studied communication science with a focus on political science, policy analysis and research methods at the University of Hohenheim (1995-2001, Diploma).
