Jönköping University, School of Education and Communication, HLK, Media and communication science.
2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

With the help of a study of the literature, I will argue for the need forresearch regarding crisis communication between the authorities and themedia in the event of extraordinary societal situations. Such research is ofimportance (both practical and theoretical), because this type of crisiscommunication can affect the authorities rescue work, the journalists´ newsreporting and the development of a societal extraordinary event into a crisissituation. The study is part of a forthcoming doctoral thesis which examinesthe interplay, the crisis communication, between the Swedish authorities andthe media in connection with the Estonia catastrophe of 1994.
