Dissertation topic
The Politics of Solidarity: Comparing the Eurozone Crisis and Europe's Migration Crisis (working title)

Dissertation abstract
Solidarity is one of the contested claims in public debates about the 'Eurozone crisis' and Europe's migration crisis. I take a closer look at solidarity and my main question is: How is solidarity framed by actors in the media arena in Ireland and Germany in both crises? I analyse German and Irish newspaper from 2010 to 2015 and deploy a discourse network analysis to shed light on conflicts about different ideas on solidarity and changing actor constellations in Ireland and Germany.
