Do digital media favor the creation of a European public sphere ?

Submitted by on June 20, 2011 – 15:40No Comment

Intranet, social net­works, blog­ging and micro-blogging… The dig­i­tal media dis­tin­guish them­selves by the fast and transna­tional dis­sem­i­na­tion of infor­ma­tion. Euro­pean infor­ma­tion strug­gles to carve out a place in tra­di­tional media. Web 2.0 pro­vides it a new scope and Euro­pean blog­gers are more numerous

In a res­o­lu­tion of 7 Sep­tem­ber 2010, the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment passed the MEPLokkegaard’s report on “jour­nal­ism and new media – cre­at­ing a pub­lic sphere in Europe”. MEPs stated the impor­tant place expected for web 2.0 in bridg­ing the gap between the cit­i­zens and their Euro­pean representatives.

But what is the real impact of new media on the Euro­pean pub­lic sphere?

What do you think?
