Crisis Communication from a Citizen Perspective – Urban Risks and Crises is the theme of the conference that will be held in Gothenburg.

5 Oct 2023 - 7 Oct 2023

The Department of Journalism, Media and Communication, the University of Gothenburg

ECREA's 7th international conference on crisis communication will take place in Gothenburg 5-7 October 2023.

The theme is Crisis communication from a citizen perspective – urban risks and crises, such as societal unrest, natural disasters, and major accidents.

We encourage participants to suggest papers and panel proposals that address the citizen perspectives of crisis communication in urban settings, but of course even contributions addressing other themes are welcome too. We encourage new approaches to theory, methodology, education and training, practice, as well as the intersection of technology in the context of risk and crisis.

We invite both researchers and practitioners and are looking for cross-disciplinary approaches from communication, journalism, business, marketing, health, law, politics, policing, cross-cultural research, education, and training.

A pre-conference for PhD students

For doctoral students, a pre-conference is held the day before, 4 October, where they can present their projects and also practice how to communicate their research to the news media and the public.


The Department of Journalism, Media and Communication at the University of Gothenburg is hosting the conference.
