Les thèmes du Front National et l’agenda de la presse française (2006-2013)

This report presents the research findings for the French case study of Nurturing populism ? The impact of the media on the growth of populist right-wing parties in Netherlands, France and Finland, a collaborative project coordinated by Counterpoint.

In their report, Alexandre HOBEIKA, PhD Candidate in Political Science at EHESS and Dr Gaël VILLENEUVE, researcher at the Laboratoire Communication et Politique (CNRS), present a detailed analysis of news pieces in Le Télégramme de Brest, Nice-Matin and Le Monde between 2006 and 2013. Through quantitative and qualitative analyses, they seek to explore whether the media’s coverage of issues like unemployment, racism and crime has legitimised the Front National’s discourse towards mainstream elites and immigrants.

The report is currently only available in French.
