Public discourse beyond national borders

  • Manuel Adolphsen


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).
