The Kurdish Policy Foundation (KPF): The changing face of political communication

July 14, 2014 byRuwayda Mustafah Rabar
Kurdish society is going through a transitory phase politically and economically. People are more likely to share their political affiliation online than ever before. This is due to easy access to the internet. The newly founded social networking websites provide people with a platform to share information, engage, discuss and investigate. The traditional ways of political communication that often limited people’s engagement with different political parties throughout the world is gradually being replaced by new forms of political communication that take place online. Consequently, world leaders are eager to engage with people using social networking sites because they have understood that the future of political communication will not be solely premised on traditional forms of political communication.
