Informationen zu den Autoren



Public Information Campaigns and Opinion Research draws on multidisciplinary insights and experiences of academics and campaign practitioners to provide a comprehensive guide and introduction to planning, implementing and measuring public information and communication campaigns.
Basic theoretical approaches and practical examples are given from a variety of national (domestic) and international (European) information and communication campaigns within and across Europe. For contrast, public opinion information and campaign strategies in a recent American state election are used to illustrate diverse perspectives and experiences in the United States.
Following each stage of a campaign, the handbook concludes by demonstrating how to measure effects, causality and public opinion change to determine what the campaign accomplished. A helpful summary and checklist for the student and practictioner is provided at the end.
This handbook will be essential reading for all students and practitioners of public relations campaigns, public opinion research, political marketing and campaigning and media and communication studies.
