Family and media. Family relationship, their rappresentation on the mass media and virtual relationship

cover libro

The first study of this third volume of the Family and Media collection presents a profile of associations and institutions involved in the promotion of the family in Argentina. Readers are given an opportunity to take a look at the image of the family that gives rise to their projects, and see the internal and external communication strategies of these associations. Family-related issues present in public opinion are also investigated. To reach these goals, 29 representatives of family associations were given in-depth interviews in the months of September to November 2012.

The research is based on a previous study carried out in Italy, “The Institutional Communication of the Forum of Family Associations (Italy)[1], commissioned to a Family and Media research team by the directors of the Forum.
