Regardless of the form of government, the art and science of politics depends heavily on communication among and between political elites, the media, and citizens. Annenberg's political science research examines the role of interpersonal and mass-mediated communication on the attitudes, opinions, information-processing, and behavior of citizens, political elites, political institutions, and political systems.
