Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2023) | Viewed by 16369
The COVID-19 pandemic had had a significant impact on political and social organization. The past two years have been characterized by numerous government decisions with a strong impact on people’s freedom and the quality of democracy. Likewise, there was a strong impact on the organization of electoral campaigns, with a proliferation of online events and the polarization of electoral outputs.
The change in the organizational framework of elections and the implementation of restrictive measures lead to the need to analyze the political and electoral campaigns and election results in this new scenario (uncertainty period).
This Special Issue plans to give an overview of the most recent advances in the field of electoral and political campaigns and communication strategies in political elections. This Special Issue is aimed at providing selected contributions on advances in the synthesis, characterization, and analysis of electoral processes in the last months, at a crossroads with the analysis of political engagement in social media.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Political campaigns between 2019 and 2021;
- Social media and elections;
- USA elections;
- National and local elections across the globe;
- Impact of COVID-19 in the political process;
- New political parties and government coalitions;
- COVID-19 and the rise of populism;
- Impact of COVID-19 on democratic regimes.
