Seeing Europe through the Eyes of Others: How "Local" Is the EU in Asia-Pacific News?

With the advent of European unity, understandings of the terms "Europe" and "European" have become even more complicated than they were before. A contested concept within its borders, how is "Europe" understood and seen from the outside? This paper deals with the under-researched issue of public perceptions of the European Union (EU) outside its borders, and the role of the international media in shaping such perceptions. The study addresses a (con)textual perspective in image creation, treating international news media discourse both as a "product" and as a "process". The domestic contextualisation of images of the EU in Asia-Pacific news texts is scrutinised in order to assess features of the content of the EU news texts as well as regional newsmakers' attitudes and behaviours when representing the EU. (Contains 9 figures, 1 table and 4 notes.)
