This book examines the ‘European refugee crisis’, offering an in-depth comparative analysis
of how public attitudes towards refugees and humanitarian dispositions are shaped by
political news coverage.
An international team of authors address the role of the media in contesting solidarity
towards refugees from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Focusing on the public
sphere, the book follows the assumption that solidarity is a social value, political concept
and legal principle that is discursively constructed in public contentions. The analysis
refers systematically and comparatively to eight European countries, namely,
Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Treatment of data is also original in the way it deals with variations of public spheres by
combining a news media claims-making analysis with a social media reception analysis.
In particular, the book highlights the prominent role of the mass media in shaping
national and transnational solidarity, while exploring the readiness of the mass media to
extend thick conceptions of solidarity to non-members. It proposes a research design for
the comparative analysis of online news reception and considers the innovative potential
of this method in relation to established public opinion research.
The book is of particular interest for scholars who are interested in the fields of European
solidarity, migration and refugees, contentious politics, while providing an
approach that talks to scholars of journalism and political communication studies, as
well as digital journalism and online news reception.
