Mediating expertise and scientific knowledge in public debates on health (MEX)

Project Details

Description

The media have become an important arena where struggles over the symbolic legitimacy of expert authority take place and where scientific experts increasingly have to compete for public recognition of their expertise, authority and credibility.
The MEX-consortium will analyze these themes by exploring the public controversies over healthy and nutritious eating and vaccinations. MEX will analyze how these disputes and related agenda-setting are built up by various types of professional and lay groups, as well as ‘mediators’ drawing from both scientific and experience-based expertise.
