Media, Integration, Identity
Research work is mainly focused on the integrating and identity forming potential of the media. However, in a constantly changing and increasingly diverse society, the principal emphasis has been on theoretical considerations as to whether and in what form the media could and should offer an integrative potential, and on how far concepts of inclusion should replace earlier ideas of an “integration” function. Nevertheless, it is obvious that modern societies cannot function without at least a minimum of national identity. Therefore, one needs to ask how a socially acceptable and peace-enhancing national identity can be developed and what role the media are playing in the identity formation process.
