Hans-Jörg Trenz' inaugural lecture
Professor and Chair of the Center for Modern European Studies (CEMES) Hans-Jörg Trenz gave his inaugural lecture on 'Mediatisation and European Integration' on Friday 27 January 2012 at the University of Copenhagen.
In his lecture Hans-Jörg Trenz developed an understanding of the mediatisation of European integration and its ambivalent effects on the EU's legitimacy.
A new research agenda was proposed, starting from the recognition of the media's autonomy and its specific impact on the scope and legitimacy of transnational (European) policies and institutions.
Hans-Jörg Trenz is EURECO-professor at CEMES and research professor at ARENA.
