This entry discusses the current state of research on news media use from an international comparative perspective. Although mono-national studies on news consumption are easy to obtain anywhere, international comparative research in this area can be considered a real shortcoming. This entry presents an overview of important comparative analyses that consider media use for political information as their key variable and that were published between 2006 and 2016. In this short time span, fundamental changes in news media habits can be identified across media systems around the world. The entry discusses the research questions and methods of these studies, as well as their findings and shortcomings. In conclusion, opportunities and challenges for future studies in the field of international comparative media use research are addressed.
