The research activity thus contributes to a comprehensive understanding of the use of modern communication means and the functioning of media institutions, the processes of information creation, the ways of their distribution, broadcasting, and influences information, cultural consumption, political choice and other areas of human life. Particular emphasis is placed on exploring the possibilities for egalitarian and democratic communication of citizens and the analysis of social and technological factors that influence the development of a pluralistic and inclusive media landscape.
