News Media Representations of a Common EU Foreign and Security Policy: A Cross-National Content Analysis of National Quality Newspapers

Abstract:

This study is a cross-national comparative content analysis of the broadsheet press coverage of EU Common Foreign and Security issues in a number of EU-member states. The study focuses on indicators of a European Public Sphere in the CFSP coverage. Specifically we examined the visibility of CFSP news, the degree of Europeanization of coverage, explicit evaluations of CFSP in the news and the presence of ‘risk’ and ‘opportunity’ frames. Our results reveal considerable variation both between countries and broadsheets in the amount of attention to CFSP issues. We identified that, overall, CFSP was more visible in the news during prescheduled key events. Coverage was primarily Europeanized in character, both at the level of featuring actors and geographical placement. When evaluative, CFSP news had a distinctive positive dimension, especially with reference to the EU as an entity. Coverage in most countries was significantly more frequently framed in terms of ‘opportunity’ rather than ‘risk’. These findings suggest that the news coverage of CFSP is rather exceptional, compared to the coverage of EU in general. Implications for the formation of public opinion and the legitimacy of CFSP are discussed.
