Abstract:

Voting is not the only way that people influence policy making. The present study concentrates on two alternative modes of political participation - the contact-mode participation, i.e., contacting governmental or non-governmental agencies to express political concerns, and the demonstrative form of participation, i.e., petitioning, demonstrating, and protesting - in 10 Asian countries where free public election has not been implemented in all of them. We propose that the political impact of media is contingent upon the democratic development level within the society. Multilevel linear regression models using wave 2 Asian Barometer Survey (n=16,737) show that newspaper, TV, and the informational use of the internet yield different but significant impacts on the different modes of participatory behaviors whereas such impacts are moderated by the level of democracy. Positive associations between reading newspaper and political participation are stronger in pro-democracy countries. The same patterns occur between the informational use of internet and political activities as well.
