5th Economics of Media Bias Workshop
We invite researchers to submit papers or extended abstracts to the 5th 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 bias, especially in news markets and on social media. 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, political, and social consequences of media bias?
Keynote speeches will be delivered by Gregory Crawford (Zurich) and Alois Stutzer (Basel). The workshop will be held on site at WZB Berlin Social Science Center, contingent on the development of the coronavirus pandemic.
