Blame it on the media? How news media frame the EU - and how it affects public opinion


Andreas Schuck is Associate Professor of Political Communication at the Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) at the University of Amsterdam. His research focuses on media effects on political opinions, attitudes and behaviour. More in particular, current projects focus on media effects on election campaigns, political participation and mobilization, public support for EU integration, and the role of emotions in political communication. He is a NWO-VENI laureate of the Dutch Science Foundation and has been Visiting Scholar at the University of Technology Sydney (Australia) and The School of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University in Washington (USA).

Blame it on the media? How news media frame the EU - and how it affects public opinion
The European Union (EU) stands at a crossroads. Never before did it face as many crises all at once: Brexit, the refugee crisis, the economic debt crisis, public scepticism, strong anti-EU and new populist parties in many member states - all this makes commentators wonder if we are witnessing the beginning of the end of the EU. But, what is the role of media in all this? EU representatives have often been worried about “misunderstandings fuelled by the press”, and scientific research has firmly established that the way the EU is portrayed in the media affects how citizens think of it. At the same time, most citizens do not have direct experience with the EU in their daily lives, further stressing the role of the news media as main source of information for most citizens.
