The Media, Europe & Democracy
The University of Bologna hosted the 2010 Europaeum Summer School on The Media, Europe & Democracy. The six day programme Summer School reflected on relations between the processes of democracy and the role and operation of the media, and questions of identity and public space, across Europe. The six-day programme also investigated ‘inside’ perceptions of the European Union by European citizens, and ‘outside’ perceptions from non-European actors, and their impact on notions of European citizenship, public debate and participatory democracy. As usual, the event was multidisciplinary, involving scholars with different backgrounds, including Sociology, International Relations, Law, Economics, Communication Studies, History and Cultural Studies.
