Reporting of the EU in Australia

About this Event

Swinburne University, EU Centre of Excellence at RMIT University, and the European Studies Association Australia and New Zealand (ESAANZ) invite you to:


Recent events in Europe and the European Union (EU) have been newsworthy. The migration crisis, the Brexit vote, ‘populist’ responses in elections, and the COVID situation have all encouraged reporting, with the Australian media giving greater attention to events in Europe than it usually does. What sources have the Australian media used for reporting on these issues? How have they presented the EU?

This online event seeks to bring the understanding of the EU alive and frame it for current debate in Australia. This will appeal to those interested in how the media reports issues pertaining to the EU in Australia.

Guest Speakers

• Swinburne University of Technology

• European Union Centre of Excellence at RMIT University, Social and Global Studies Centre,

• European Studies Association Australia and New Zealand (ESAANZ)

With support from the Jean Monnet program of the European Commission.
