Call for papers: European public space. Towards integration of information arenas?
Europe in the national public space is a perspective that is becoming more and more complicated to understand in terms of institutional globalization and the interconnection of communication environments. While Member States are reluctant to lose sovereignty and are therefore defending their internal interests, the convergence of global phenomena is obliging institutions to rethink about the public sphere and the relationship with citizens.
The European integration process often clashes with the difficulty of Member States to react dynamically to the new context and therefore does not encourage the growth of a common European identity. An emergent distrust towards the European integration process is weakening the unity project and making increasingly fragile the idea of a shared identity and of a common space for decision making. The European integration issue and the growing perception of its concreteness seem to collide with the difficulty of letting the people understand its complexity, also because of the adoption of languages not able to construct meaning and then support by the citizens. The recent economic crisis has gradually increased feelings of mistrust towards the European model, which has become too rigid and has produced internal discord, as the recent immigration crisis confirms. ￼
