Abstract

The Euroblogosphere now consists of many hundreds of blogs, all commenting on different aspects of Europe, its politics and policies. But are blogs in Europe part of a European Public Sphere? Using interviews with European bloggers, Javier Ruiz Soler finds that despite the seeming lack of deep level debate and the over presence of English, blogging is a growing contributor to an also growing European Public Sphere, and could well be an important factor in helping people to contribute to policy debates and increase political participation in coming years.
