Communication Flows in European Elections. Between Populism and Euroscepticism**

Editors: Guillermo López-García, Germán Llorca-Abad (Universitat de València, Spain)
Deadline for receiving papers: 01/04/2020
Publication: December 2020/

Summary: The rise of populist movements from different ideologies, often linked to Eurosceptical positions, coincides with a context of uncertainty in the European project. From a political perspective, public debate focuses on addressing the European Union project itself. Similarly, the institutional crisis within the EU, whose epicentre now focuses on Brexit, paralyses advances in integration policies. The political fragility of the Paris-Berlin axis, a slowdown in economic growth and the problems emerging from the mismanagement of migratory flows contribute to fostering nationalist, ethnocentric and rejectionist discourses. Taken as a whole, all these issues suggest the loss or decline of the EU’s capacity for advocacy in the context of globalisation.

With such a context, it would be appropriate to analyse whether the media and digital communication reflection of the discussions taking place contribute to its clarification or, on the contrary, increase tensions. The role of mediation and mediatisation of crucial messages is key when defining, firstly, their interdependence and, secondly, the extent of their influence on public opinion, the construction of collective imagination and the impact on electoral processes. Thus, the purpose of this special issue is to analyse the presence and dissemination of these discourses through social media, social networks and other digital communication spaces, as well as their impact on political discourse and electoral results.
