Abstract
Cross-national and longitudinal comparative research on the media coverage of EU-related news has gained an increasing interest and momentum, but are still rare and generally focus on the EU as an intergovernmental institution, hence remaining largely ignorant of the particular flows of news in between the member states of the EU. The following analysis provides insight into the media coverage of the Polish EU presidency in the region of Flanders. For this quantitative content analysis, our scope is narrowed to three Flemish media sources. Based on a predetermined set of keywords related to the Polish case and using the newspaper search engine Mediargus, we collected 735 articles for analysis. In conclusion, the analyzed news sample devoted little attention to the Polish EU presidency. News items relevant to the EU presidency of Poland were concentrated around the presidential inauguration, limited in size, not necessarily political of nature, and favored objective news reporting with absence of a discernible attitude towards Poland.
