The LAB session 2017 is going to start. Please consider the following dates:

Surveys realized by the LAPS at the University of Siena & opportunities for students are also illustrated.
Participants learn how to search & analyse data about the activities of the members of the EP.
CIRCaP archives are presented on a selection of EU-related policy issues.
How to filter EU-salient Tweets and content-analyse the discourse of political leaders? A codebook has been presented to students and shared among participants in the Tutorial seminar research session.
Key questions: can we confirm that leaders belonging to the political mainstream tweet less about the EU than leaders in the eurosceptic groups? to what extent do national political leaders mention other EU countries/leaders in their tweets? which issues provoke more discussion and which are the most retweeted/favourite EU-related ashtags?
