Abstract
The current political landscape is innervated by the systematic and strategic use of digital media – whether the focus is set on social movement and protest dynamics; multi-actor governance processes; or onto political campaign and electoral dynamics. The ubiquitous and recombinant nature of digital media urges researchers to maintain a flexible analytical approach, which finds in the collection and the systematic analysis of digital relational data a preferred entry point. In this context, the Panel welcomes papers that address substantial and/or methodological issues related to online and social media political networks, amongst which the entrenchment of political views, polarization, personalized political communication, and young people engagement; the deployment of power dynamics; the collection and analysis of large-scale digital datasets; the predictive potential of online exchange mapping.
