WG1: Empirical Study of Public Argumentation

The primary objective of WG1 is argumentative analysis of EU documents and procedures, the media, and citizens’ discourse. This group includes linguists, discourse analysts, communication scholars, social psychologists, political scholars and other social scientists who contribute to a corpus based on data collected in past and ongoing individual research projects. The corpus includes structured face-to-face interviews, online and social media discussions, EU-documents and procedural guidelines, media reports, and citizens’ discourse.

Data collection, curation, and analysis covers a local, national, and European level. This corpus is collected with the goal of facilitating qualitative and quantitative analyses of arguments pro or con specific policies at the micro-level (argument type), the meso-level of argumentative patterns typical for decision-making, and the macro-level of argumentative procedures that reflect institutional conventions and design. This will generate an annotated database across European languages.

COST Action          Horizon 2020


COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.

COST Action CA17132

Providing and criticising reasons is indispensable to achieve sound public policy that commands the support of both citizens and stakeholders. This need is now widely acknowledged in the recent literature and key EU documents, which highlight the perils of populist discourse and policies.
