In recent years, celebrities from George Clooney to Bono to Angelina Jolie have attempted to play an increasingly important role in global politics. Celebrity activism is an ever-growing, internationally visible phenomenon—yet the impact of these high-profile humanitarians on public awareness, government support, and mobilization of resources remains under-researched. Bringing together a diverse group of contributors from media studies and public diplomacy, Transnational Celebrity Activism in Global Politics aims to fill that void with a new interdisciplinary framework for the analysis of celebrity activism in international relations.

Lisa Tsaliki is a lecturer in communications and mass media at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.



Christos Frangonikolopoulos is assistant professor in politics and international relations at the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.



Asteris Huliaras is professor of comparative politics at the University of Peloponnese.
