Europe Facing New Challenges of Contestation and Communication: Conclusion

Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Political Sociology book series (PSEPS)


We started working on this volume after a symposium held in Vienna in April 2015, where we examined the concept of Euroscepticism and the nature of opposition to EU integration, while studying the relationship between the media and European democracy. In particular, we addressed the role of ‘traditional media’, as well as ‘new media’, and whether these can be facilitator or obstacle to both European democracy and the development of European citizens, or demos, as suggested in the last chapter of this book.
