Abstract

Much of the research on the European public sphere has focused on it functions and contribution to legitimacy and potential impact on processes of policymaking. However, this very same literature coincides in that all possible models of Europeanisation of public debates have different practical problems despite their theoretical potential. To name just a few, those are the weakness of civil society transnational linkages, the narrative diversity about the EU in different national political spaces and the lack of incentives for political and media actors to have a sustained involvement in European public sphere. This panel invites contributions analysing this practice problems from sociological, communication or organisational perspectives focusing on practical examples of actors and / or processes linking politics and policies across different national or practice spheres.
