  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Citizens; EU; Euroscepticism; Internet; Media.

The article examines the impact of the media on citizens' attitudes towards Europe. The analysis includes all EU member states and considers both traditional and new media. Our results show that the media certainly play a prominent role in shaping the attitudes of public opinion towards the EU, notably the new media have determined more critical and disenchanted attitudes. From the theoretical point of view, as well as with respect to media impact on social reality, the article calls for greater awareness about the influence of the new media in building opposition against the project of an integrated Europe.
