BredowCast 86: Finnischer Journalismus und seine Erforschung

Journalism researcher Laura Ahva talks about the challenges and developments in Finnish journalism and how it is being researched.

Laura Ahva is a junior professor for "Journalism Studies" at the University of Tampere and a visiting researcher at the HBI until the end of 2023. In a conversation with BredowCast host Johanna Sebauer, she talks about the characteristics of the Finnish media system, current challenges for journalism and journalism research. 
According to Laura Ahva, Finland's media system belongs to the so-called "Nordic model", which also includes Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland. This media system model is characterized by a strong newspaper market with relatively high print circulations, a high level of trust in public broadcasting and close ties between readers and local as well as regional media companies. Laura Ahva sees digitization and datafication as the biggest changes and challenges for journalism in Finland.
Laura Ahva investigates developments in journalism not only on a macro level, but also on an individual level: In one of her current research projects, she is following 40 young journalists over a longer period of time with the aim of tracing their career paths from the very beginning of their careers.
