The media and the Västra Götaland County

The project The media and the Västra Götaland County is part of the University of Gothenburg’s evaluation programme concerning the establishment of the new Region. The purpose of the project is to study how media deal with a major change in society such as the establishment of the Region. Several theoretical perspectives are used, including media logic and social change, media and accountability, the information value of media and political scandals.

Several studies have been conducted as part of the project. All of them have investigated the news media’s reporting on the Region over time in order to study the information value of the news media in their coverage of the Region and how news valuation changes in connection with major social change. Studies on media reporting when there is a significant event related to political accountability have also been conducted. In addition, the conditions for reporting on the Region have been studied on several occasions through interviews with different types of news journalists.
