Unsupervised Europe – new research project, new blog

The aim of this blog will be to expose the methodological problems, advances and results of a research project focusing on online debates about European integration, called UNSURE (Unsupervised Europe: European citizens and online debates about European integration).

The UNSURE project will try to figure out how European citizens relate to EU democratic institutions at a time when political debate has frequently hinged on the democratic deficit of such bodies.

The blog will start by focusing on a sub-theme (and sub-dataset) of the UNSURE project: French-speaking newsgroups such as fr.soc.economie which was the main Usenet newsgroups to debate on economic issues, including related to the common economic policies.
