Europe in the Media draws together the results of several research projects that examined media coverage of European political and cultural affairs and media representations of Europe. The book attempts to outline some of the important debates regarding European integration and to describe the media landscape in which these debates are informed, reflected, and facilitated. The research presented sought to answer several questions, namely the role of the media in the democratic process at the European level and the extent to which the media contributes to and reflects the process of European integration. The book provides a wide scope of comparative analysis, allowing for an extremely interesting overview of the way that national media systems in France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom approach the issue of European integration. Based on the news output of over 50 media outlets in eight countries, this book contains the original data gathered by experts during two 1-week monitoring periods, as well as data that was collected and coded by experts with reference to the programming of more than 12 major broadcasters in six countries. This volume addresses debates and analysis from the fields of political science in relation to the process of European integration, EU policymaking and public participation and opinion-formation. It also outlines relevant media theory regarding the relationships between the media and democracy, and the media and identity formation. In this way, the book provides a valuable link between these two separate fields of investigation in an area that is of increasing interest to academics, students, politicians, and journalists.

In recent years, media coverage of the European Union has faced its most serious test. The interlinked crises in the Union have severely tested the expertise of the EU press corps, many of whom have struggled to cope with its complexities, and have thrown into sharper relief the differences among the national coverages. At the same time, the crises have deepened trends towards euro scepticism in many EU member states - thus putting pressure on correspondents to be more sceptical, analytical, argumentative and even hostile, in their reporting. This development has revealed a greater gulf between reporters - who are now more sceptical than their predecessors - and the press service and officials of the EU, who remain strongly committed to the narrative of an 'ever-closer union'. Yet - in contrast to the rising euro scepticism - the crises have emphasised the need perceived by European officials and many European politicians for deeper integration, at least among Euro currency members, to cope with the crisis. This book, based on extensive interviews with EU correspondents, editors, public relations and other EU executives, will reveal for the first time how this powerful group of institutions at the heart of the Union are covered - or are not covered. The analysis and critique of the present coverage also carries a series of recommendations on how it might be made to better serve the citizens of the EU members. The authors highlight the structural and historic difficulties in covering a multinational institution, and the struggle - generally unsuccessful - to develop a journalism which can fully hold the institutions to account, and find an audience which goes beyond the narrow circles of professionals and politicians who are closely concerned with the business of the Union.

The book edited by four known specialists of European history presents for the first time a discussion among European historians on the European public sphere since the 1950s. It treats the general perspective and deals also in special articles with the role played by the European Union, by the Council of Europe, and by national media such as television and film. The volume shows that the role of the European public sphere is often underestimated and that it is gradually becoming more influential and forceful not only in politics, but also in culture. Sous la direction de quatre specialistes renommes de l'histoire europeenne, cet ouvrage presente de facon inedite un debat entre historiens de l'Europe sur l'espace public europeen et son evolution depuis les annees 1950. La question est abordee dans son ensemble, mais certaines contributions traitent aussi plus specifiquement du role joue par l'Union europeenne, par le Conseil de l'Europe, et par les medias nationaux, comme la television et le cinema. Ce volume montre que l'on a souvent sous-estime l'espace public europeen, alors que son influence est de plus en plus importante, tant au niveau politique que culturel."

The Euro crisis has led to an unprecedented Europeanization and politicization of public spheres across the continent. In this volume, leading scholars make two claims. First, they suggest that transnational crossborder communication in Europe has been encouraged through the gradual Europeanization of national as well as issue-specific public spheres. Second, the politicization of European affairs - at the European Union (EU) level and in the domestic politics of member states - is inevitable and here to stay. Europeanized public spheres, whether elite media, mass media, or social media such as the internet, provide the arenas in which the politicization of European and EU issues takes place. European Public Spheres explores the history of these developments, the nature of politicization in the public spheres as well as its likely consequences, and the normative implications for European public life.

European institutions are concerned at how poorly informed the public is about the European Union. More than 70 per cent of Europe's citizens claim to know very little or practically nothing about the EU, while turnout in elections is on the decline. Since 2003 the Council, European Parliament and Commission have been engaged in a thorough review of their information policies. One of the key aspects of the new information policy will involve raising the EU's profile in the most popular medium, television. This report examines the case for: (a) setting up a new, independent television channel dedicated to carrying news stories on the EU's activities and (b) fostering the expansion of television news services on the EU on existing channels. The report is divided into three parts. The first part analyses the market in television services (TV channels and broadcasting modes) and the range of political news programmes, and more specifically those offering news about the EU (focusing in particular on pan-European special-interest news channels). The second part looks into the take-up and demand for political news on television through television news and specialised news programmes. The third part gives a detailed description of existing parliamentary television channels inside and outside the EU. The study concludes by weighing up the various permutations as regards digital or Internet (Web TV) television channels specialising in news about the EU. This includes an estimate of costs and potential audience figures. One viable option is proposed, involving converting Europe by Satellite into a genuine EU-news agency and expanding production or co-production policy with respect to programmes broadcast on existing channels.

The book addresses a critical analysis of major media policies in the European Union and the Council of Europe at the period of profound changes affecting both media environments and use, as well as the logic of media policy making and reconfiguration of traditional regulatory models. The analytical problem-related approach explores three problem areas: freedom of expression as a regulatory rationale, AVMS Directive and content-related regulation, and media pluralism and structural regulation. This volume offers a perspective of both "new" and "old" EU Member States on a media policy process seen as an integral part of a European communication space formation and exercise of communication rights.
