Constructing Brexit: crisis and international political communication

Anthony Ridge-Newman, Fernando León-Solís, Hugh O’Donnell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Chapters of this book show examples in which the news media across a range of national and international locales appear to have constructed narratives in the run-up to the 2016 EU referendum and shortly following the Brexit vote. This concluding chapter aims to examine how the media went about constructing Brexit in relation to international political communication theories that address the domestication/heterogeneity and globalization/homogeneity of news content. It does this by comparing how the national and international media cases reported the road to Brexit in 2016. The chapter concludes that national and international media representations of Brexit were mixed; and that the international political communication of Brexit included competing flows of globalized and domesticated news content.
