Public discourse beyond national borders



This and the following chapter introduce the theoretical context for this study. They integrate several strands of research into one coherent argument, which is built in three steps:
  • I start by introducing the notions of public discourse and public sphere as the context of strategic communication efforts (2.1). Subsequently, I explore how these notions can be conceived of at the transnational level (2.2 and 2.3). This leads me to the interim conclusion that HIPS constitute short-term fora that interconnect with and temporarily transnationalize national public spheres (2.4).
