Representations about the European Union in Spanish, Polish and Romanian TV news
This paper examines the way in which Spanish, Polish and Romanian prime time TV news programs construct the social representation about the European Union. The data used in this article are part of the international project “Media about the European Union” that aimed to map the EU representations currently in circulation within the European countries. The article does not intend to confirm or invalidate various stereotypes that persist today in the collective imaginary, but aims to offer some data which may be useful to understand how various types of Spanish, Polish and Romanian TV channels construct social representations about the EU. The research project analyzed the role of political institutions in the development of social representations of the EU. Moreover, this project aimed to examine Spanish, Polish and Romanian media coverage of the EU political, economic, legal, cultural, and social affairs. It attempted to outline some of the important debates regarding the effects of the actual economic crisis that have changed media messages in each of sampled country. It has also sought to answer several questions, including the role of the Spanish, Polish and Romanian media in the democratic process at the European level and the extent to which the media contribute to and reflects the process of Europeanization. The methodology applied in this research project combine a mixture of quantitative and qualitative analysis.
