A study of media use and geopolitical narratives in Ukraine

Welcome to the website of Stratnarra, a three-year research project funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship programme.


The Stratnarra project ran from September 2015 to August 2018. It collected data on news consumption and the reception of conflicting political narratives among Ukrainian citizens, in order to shed light on how governments manage (or fail) to exert influence via mass communication in contemporary international relations.


Funding for Stratnarra has now ceased and this website will not be updated further. However, work to publish results from the project is continuing. For news and updates about publications arising from Stratnarra, follow Dr Joanna Szostek on ResearchGate, Twitter or visit her page on the University of Glasgow website.
