Professor Hartmut Wessler's project on responsible terrorism coverage receives DFG funding

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved Professor Hartmut Wessler's proposal for funding for his project B1.13 "Responsible Terrorism Coverage (ResTeCo). A Global Comparative Analysis of News Coverage About Terrorism from 1945 to the Present". The project asks how journalists around the world can responsibly report on terror attacks in ways that give citizens the information they need without providing terrorists with the kinds of attention they want.
