Communication of political interest groups in Switzerland: Adressees, channels and instruments


Jentges, E; Brändli, M; Donges, P; Jarren, O (2013). Communication of political interest groups in Switzerland: Adressees, channels and instruments. Studies in Communication Sciences, 13(1):33-40.

Abstract

We present a broad overview on the Swiss interest group population and the results of a quantitative online survey on the communication repertoire of 985 interest groups. We then discuss sample construction and the different addressees of interest group communication, the perceived relevance of mass media channels, and which instruments and measures are used to communicate with external and internal environments. We identify four different logics – influence, support, reputation and reciprocity – that influence the communication activities of political intermediaries such as interest groups.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
