Research concentrates on European Integration News and Journalism.  Not only how to report the EU, but also on how  to develop a ‘European Perspective’ that can operate as a counterweight to the methodological ‘national angle’ in reporting. In particular, research will focus on reporting and writing about the EU, reporting what the EU is and how it really works and the challenges and prospects of European Integration Journalism (trends and tools in EU investigative journalism, investigating transparency, the role of lobbyists/interest groups in EU institutions, access to documents etc, trans-border journalism).
