LSE Eurocrisis: The Politics of Public Discourse in Europe

The ongoing economic and political crisis significantly shapes the fortunes of many Europeans, but to what extent do they share a common view of the causes and solutions of the crisis, and indeed of the idea of Europe itself?

The press plays an influential role in constructing and reinforcing public discourses. This blogs aims to review, deconstruct and compare discourses about the crisis across Europe.

This blog is an open forum for discussion and sharing analysis, interesting facts, anecdotes and observations about the news coverage and public discourses on the crisis. It invites submissions.

This blog is part of a wider research project: The Euro Crisis in the Press an interdisciplinary and comparative study which investigates press coverage as a platform that is both reflective and constitutive of public discourses about the crisis.

This initiative is currently is part of the Conflict and Civil Society Research Unit at the LSE. LSE Eurocrisis was previously associated with the Media and Communications Department at the LSE and with LSE IDEAS, the centre for the study of international affairs, diplomacy and strategy.
