Tussen constructieve kritiek en vernietigend cynisme

This report presents the research findings for the Dutch case study for 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, Jiska Engelbert and Esther Audier, from the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, explore the populist sentiment present in the Dutch media between 2006 and 2012. Through quantitative and qualitative analyses of more than 300 news pieces from De Volkskrant, De Telegraaf and Algemeen Dagblad  – published around the national parliamentary elections of 2006, 2010 and 2012 – they assess whether citizens’ distrust of political actors’ processes and decision-making is a problem brought about by the media’s representation of news stories.

The report is currently only available in Dutch.
