Sabine Schiffer
Head of the Media Responsibility Institute (IMV) in Germany

Her research focuses on discrimination in news media and on the impact of media on attitudes and values, especially on children’s values. Modern forms of propaganda are one of her most important subjects, in which the 'Enemy' (Feindbild) Islam is playing an important role today. With a PhD degree in linguistics, publications include a book on the 'Coverage of Islam in German Press' (2005) and on a comparative analysis of anti-Jewish and anti-Islamic hate speech (2009, with Constantin Wagner, IMV).
