Hans Bredow Institute
The Hans Bredow Institute at the University of Hamburg was founded as an independent non-profit organization in 1950. The research conducted by the Institute focuses on mediated public communication and future opportunities and risks. The Institute emphasizes its role as an independent observer and combines sociological, legal, economic and pedagogical approaches, because it strongly believes that contemporary problems of media development call for an interdisciplinary and a cross-national comparative perspective. Cooperation and constant exchange with the different actors in the media sphere are basic values for the Institute’s research. For further Information visit our website
