Abstract

Digital platforms are at the core of several political processes. With what impact? Our main aim is to explore how pervasive is digital platform usage among different political actors. Besides, the well-known social platforms, other platforms became the cornerstone for the deliberation and the decision-making process of several political organisations. Do different platforms imply different communicative, campaign and organisational strategies? Which are the main differences between platforms? However, these platforms impose new financial and time-costly burdens for users, while at the same time strengthening the monopoly of their owners. With what consequences for both the representativeness of political actors and their finance? Which were the counteractions implemented by institutional actors to oversee the functioning of those platforms? The panel invites contributions aimed at covering empirical, theoretical as well as methodological aspects of platformization of politics. In particular, it encourages comparative papers with a non-European focus.
