This paper aims to contribute to the understanding of Europe as reflected in European media.
We compared an analysis of the media with the preliminary findings of a qualitative research project. The results confirm national differences, but highlight also variations across social groups, and the way citizens make sense of politics in the first place
An ongoing research project is seeking to quantify and analyse national printed media discourses about Europe over the decades since the end of the second world war. A first snapshot screened more than 2.8 million articles in Le Monde, out of which 750,000 speak about “Europe”.
