Campaigning for Strasbourg (CamforS) is a sub-project of DigiDeMo conducting a cross-national comparison of campaign mobilization in social media. Building upon a broad expertise in political communication research, CamforS focuses on how traditional and new political actors use social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) to inform, interact with, and mobilize voters, as well as which target audiences they address during the European Election Campaign 2019.
