Narratives and Counter-narratives of European Integration
This publication tackles strategies for bridging the widening gap between the EU and its citizens. It focuses on new theoretical and empirical frameworks about EU media frames and narratives, political discourse and citizens’ perceptions in order to promote a critical, yet constructive approach to the role of communication in the process of European integration. It has been acknowledged that the least problem the EU has is a communication problem. Communication is largely ineffective against a rising sentiment of injustice and inequality among increasingly diverse national, social and political groupings across the EU. Therefore, the authors underline how EU communication and EU public sphere can shape common representations of what can unite us as Europeans.

Is the Refugee Crisis Shaping Different Representations of the EU? Narratives of Europeanization in Pan-European vs. National Online Media
Abstract: The aim of our paper is to explore the complex interactions between frames and narratives, which fortify the architectural structure of the mediatized discourse on the European Union. Our research builds on Trenz’s (2014) narratives of Europeanization but, also, on research dedicated to news framing as a means to convey a certain type of meaning to the mediatized discourse.
Keywords: Euroskepticism, refugees, national, Pan-European, online media
