EU:s demokratiska underskott och kommunikationens roll: En kvalitativ analys av den europeiska unionens kommunikationspolicy
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Discussions about the democratic deficit of the European Union have gotten more intense and the criticism usually points towards a great gap between the citizens and the EU politics. In this study the political communication policy is being put under the scope to investigate to what extent the policy is designed to counter the democratic deficit, supported by the theory of deliberative democracy. The analysis examines three aspects of the deficit – decentralization, participation and the distribution of information – and makes research into the communicative measures that have been implemented. The importance for EU to make deliberation possible is stressed throughout the essay and in the conclusion I argue that improvements still need to be made.
