Project:

Narrative Making in the European Capital

I seek to explore how communications experts in Brussels construct European narratives at a time when European integration is increasingly challenged. In light of current changes to political discourse, including both social media and the populist challenge, my project will look in particular at the role of appealing to emotions rather than rationally based communication. The aim is to highlight the importance of narrative making in the EU in order to sustain its work on fostering democracy both within and outside the Union.
