No news is bad news! The role of the media and news framing in embedding Europe

Webpublication 20 - C.H. de Vreese

Our current understanding of public support for (or reluctance towards) advances in European integration sorely misses the role of the media. The media play a crucial role in the intersection between citizens and politics, but in the context of European integration, we have only limited knowledge about how they cover Europena issues and what the effects are on public support for and legitimacy of advances in European integration. This paper addresses this topic.
