Why Europe?

Narratives and Counter-narratives of European Integration

Edited By Alina Bârgăoanu, Raluca Buturoiu and Loredana Radu

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.

Representations of Europe in the Online Media Discourse about Migration. A Comparative Approach

Abstract: Drawing upon the social representations theory, this paper investigates how Europe is represented in the Romanian and French online news articles referring to the migration crisis. Findings confirm the fact that the themes, the actions and the characteristics of Europe, as they are detailed in the media, equally contribute to the understanding of Europe’s place, role and features in a context of severe crises.

Keywords: Migrant crisis, representations of Europe, online media coverage, comparative approach
