The Laboratoire Communication et Politique (LCP), which is lead by Isabelle Veyrat-Masson, has joined the IRISSO as a team on January 1st 2015.
The LCP studies the role played by media and communication processes in public space.
It develops a historical, sociological and political perspective to analyze current events such as elections, wars, stereotypes and representations. More recently, the LCP has undertaken studies of discourse analysis, scientific and health controversies, imaginary and social representation constitutions. The LCP includes the importance and the place of digital communication in its research questions.
