Project description
Hybrid Terrorizing (HYTE) project develops an innovative research model for the study of global media events of terrorist violence that take place in the hybrid media system. HYTE advances theoretical research, produces new methodological toolkit, and provides fresh empirical knowledge on the workings and implications of hybrid global media events of terrorist violence. HYTE brings together media and communication studies, computational social sciences and international politics and security studies into a fruitful scholarly dialogue with each other. The consortium combines quantitative and qualitative research methods to analyse different types of media data, interviews and fieldwork material. In addition to high level publication activities, HYTE establishes an international research network that produces new knowledge on hybrid terrorizing and creates a new platform for dialogue between academics, experts and policy makers.
