Research

The research activities of Jordy Gosselt can be divided into 2 lines of interest. The first line of research concerns the legitimation of technology. The rise of an emerging technology often leads to resistance from actors with interests in the incumbent system. For example, political barriers may occur as a result of lobbying efforts of producers of incumbent technologies. More specifically, technological innovation that is incongruous with established social rules and practices is often confronted with strong skepticism and a lack of societal legitimacy. Yet, how the early actors in a new technological field create legitimacy for new technologies is not well researched. By means of combining the domains of public relations, public affairs, and technology innovation systems theory (TIS), this line of research focuses on the legitimation of technological innovations, specifically by means of (1) media and (2) Public Affairs activities.

Regarding the first, the legitimation process is investigated by focusing on how organizations may benefit from new media technologies in order to enhance their corporate communications with external stakeholders, increasing legitimation. Based on validated conceptual frameworks in the fields of information systems and communication, including the notion of technology affordances and public relations, technological affordances of social media applications that help corporate communicators are subject of investigation. Next to this, the effectiveness and effects of corporate social responsibility activities are being explored as a means to reach legitimacy. Second, as a final step of legitimation, Public Affairs (PA) has shown its relevance. For the private sector – PA already is a useful instrument with which to create a relationship with society. PA encompasses a wide range of activities, including arena analysis (inventory of all stakeholders), issue management (inventory of stakes and arguments), identification of networks, and lobbying (influence policymaking) and can be seen as a strategic management discipline, directed to the political, administrative realm the organization is functioning in or is going to function in. However, as PA is still academically underrepresented, little is known about the strategies employed to reach receptiveness for the issues at hand. Currently, studies are being conducted into (1) the legitimation process from both a corporate and technological perspective; and (2) PA strategies in order to foster this legitimation process.

The second line of research concerns the effects and effectiveness of media ratings. In short, in order to reduce the negative effects of exposure to detrimental media many countries introduced media rating systems. Based on the widespread implementation of age limits, it is reasonable to infer that age limits are highly effective in reducing the availability of these products to minors. However, age limits are influenced by many factors that can potentially diminish their effectiveness. In this line of research, studies are conducted that, based on the forbidden fruit hypothesis, focus on the question whether and when media ratings make media products forbidden fruits. See the dissertation entitled ‘Off Limits: The Effectiveness of Age Limits in Reducing Underage Sales’.

International experience

Involved in the European alcohol project Amphora (www.amphoraproject.net). In 2006 the European Commission adopted an EU strategy to support Member States in reducing harm caused by alcohol and fostering related research. Amphora is a four-year project co-financed by the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of research of the European Commission. Amphora aims to contribute with new evidence on scarcely explored or unexplored areas of alcohol consumption and alcohol-related harm in Europe. This knowledge will be disseminated to those engaged in policy-making for development and implementation of more effective public health measures. Together with the Dutch Institute for Alcohol Policy (STAP; see www.stap.nl) the University of Twente is conducting an longitudinal study into the effects of alcohol advertising on the alcohol consumption level of adolescents in four countries (Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Poland).
