Markus Ojala
DSocSc, Postdoctoral researcher

I work as a postdoctoral grant researcher at the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Helsinki. My current study concentrates on the public debate on reforming the Economic and Monetary Union in Eurozone’s post-crisis context.

My disciplinary background is in media and communication studies, and I have a long-time interest in international forms of media and the public sphere. My previous publications explore various aspects of international political communication, including questions related to the role of the media in the Eurozone crisis, Ukraine conflict, migration issues and economic globalisation. My doctoral study “The Making of a Global Elite: Global Economy and the Davos Man in the Financial Times 2001–2011” examined the public communication between global business and policy-making elites.
