Welcome to the website of European Communication Research and Education Association. ECREA is a learned society of communication scholars devoted to development of communication research and higher education in Europe.
ECREA is organised into 24 thematic Sections, each developing a distinctive field of communication studies, 4 Temporary Working Groups which focus on emerging or underrepresented fields within media and communication studies, and 3 permanent Networks representing specific socio-demographic categories of scholars.
Driven by volunteer work of over one hundred Section, Temporary Working Group and Network Chairs and Vice-Chairs, and eleven-member Executive Board, ECREA is an association with strong bottom-up organisational culture, where various projects and ideas are emerging and materialising through creative energy and enthusiasm of our members.
As President, it is my privilege to welcome you to ECREA and encourage you to join our association and become a member of a fast-growing community of communication scholars from Europe and beyond.
John Downey, ECREA president
