Ukraine in Media Debates in the UK, Germany and France

Petr Kratochvil, Petra Cibulkova, and Michal Benik have published The EU as a Framing Actor: Reflections on Media Debates About EU Foreign Policy in 49 JCMS: Journal of Common Market Studies 391 (2011). Here is the abstract.

This article explores the EU's ability to frame the public debates about its external policies. The article begins by broadening the current discussions about the three aspects of actorness legitimacy, attractiveness and recognition by introducing the EU's framing power as a fourth aspect of actorness. Then it proceeds to an empirical analysis of framing, which is based on a discourse analysis of the news coverage of Ukraine (2002-07) in print media in the three biggest EU Member States (United Kingdom, Germany and France).
