Abstract: European integration considerably changes public discourses in the member states of the European Union. In this work, I examine the conditions for the Europeanization of public discourse and the nature of Europeanized public discourse. According to a theoretical framework building on postfunctionalist theories of European integration, mainstream opposition and challenger parties with strong positive and negative preferences on European integration have incentives to strategically shape Europeanized public discourse. I test several hypotheses considering three important political issues - economy, security and migration - using a self-compiled data set of about 3 million newspaper articles in 24 different languages from all EU member states retrieved from the Internet Archive between 2016 and 2019. The results indicate that mainstream opposition and challenger parties increase the saliency of Europeanized public discourse. Furthermore, the polarization of Europeanized public discourse builds upon the interaction of challenger parties with strong preferences on European integration and mainstream opposition parties. This work provides a framework and first empirical evidence on the Europeanization of public discourses in all EU member states, using multi-lingual quantitative text analysis on a large data set retrieved from the Internet Archive.
