International Research Group on Crisis Communication
The International Research Group on Crisis Communication (IRGoCC) was founded at the Institute of Media and Communication Science, which is one of the biggest research and education facilities for communications in Germany. In the interdisciplinary academic environment of the Ilmenau University of Technology we aim at stimulating and conducting in-depth and integrative research in the field of crisis communication. Our work is neither limited to the study of industrial crisis management nor the analysis of journalistic war coverage. We explicitly include different types of crisis on individual, organizational or societal level in order to contribute to the further integration of a very fragmented field of study.
