The workshop series

The Economics of Media Bias Workshop is an annual event that takes place at varying universities. It brings together economists and researchers from related disciplines to discuss how media bias can be measured, what causes media bias, and how media bias affects economic, political, and societal outcomes. The first workshop was conducted in 2015 at Hamburg Media School, Germany, where participants initiated a funding application that should help finance future workshops on the topic. The application was approved by the German Research Foundation, providing funds for workshops in Lausanne (2017), Cologne (2018), and Berlin (2019). The series was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic and continued in 2022, thanks to the support of numerous academic institutions. The Economics of Media Bias Workshop brings together the different perspectives, approaches, and methods that can be found in the area. It aims to support and integrate young researchers by connecting them with more experienced scholars.
