Mediating Trust in Terrorism Coverage

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


    Mass mediated risk communication can contribute to perceptions of threats and fear of “others” and/or to perceptions of trust in fellow citizens and society to overcome problems. This paper outlines a cross-disciplinary holistic framework for research in mediated trust building during an acute crisis. While the framework is presented in the context of television coverage of a terror-related crisis situation, it can equally be used in connection with all other forms of mediated trust.
    Key words: National crisis, risk communication, crisis management, television coverage, mediated trust.
