New Essay: Are Online Forums the New Community Centers for Danes?

The essay is published as part of a larger essay series under the auspices of Magtudredningen 2.0.

“Through studies of Facebook groups, we have found that the format allows citizens to organize, mobilize political protest, and engage politicians, the media, and, most importantly, each other.”

In a new essay, Sine N. Just, Mikkeline Thomsen, Sarah Steinitz, and Morten Fischer Sivertsen discuss citizens’ right and access to participate in the democratic debate in light of the significant rise of online forums, such as Facebook groups.
