Our podcast episode #7 brings an interview with Dr. Barbi Pilvre, Researcher at Tallinn University of Technology – TalTech. Dr. Pilvre was interviewed by Dr. Samuel Doveri Vesterbye, Director of the European Neighborhood Council (ENC). She guides us through her team’s research progress, addressing the latest analysis of how the Estonian media covers and represents issues related to the European Union (EU).

The TalTech team has completed media analysis of Estonian discourses about the EU, and has embarked on research about elite perceptions and framing of the European project. These aspects are investigated through interviews with political and media actors in Estonia. The media analysis and interviews are crucial elements in MEDIATIZED EU’s mixed-methods research approach.

Watch or listen to the interview for more details on the different research phases and on the Estonian team’s findings thus far.
