Political Migration Discourses on Social Media Across Countries and Over Time

Political Migration Discourses on Social Media Across Countries and Over Time

November 4, 2019

Working Paper

This paper aims to complement existing understandings of public discourses about European migration by focusing on social media, specifically Facebook. The researchers investigate the Facebook status posts of 1,590 political actors in Spain, the UK, Germany, Austria, Sweden and Poland from 2015-2017. Applying innovative, automated procedures to a large scale text corpus, this study focuses on the visibility and sentiment of the migration topic, and also on interactions between users — a function specific to social network sites like Facebook.
