In mediatized, fragmented and disruptive societies, normative evaluations of media production, distribution and reception are becoming more and more important. In Austria, however, institutionalized expertise for media ethical problems is still a desideratum. The project pursues the aim to evaluate research gaps in the field of ethics in mediatized worlds - and to prepare the foundation of an Interdisciplinary Media Ethics Center (IMEC) that can provide analyses in this field on a scientific basis, including knowledge from philosophy, communication science, economics, political science, law, sociology and similar disciplines.
