Abstract: [1st paragraph] ‘Quo vadis Europa?’ addressed Joschka Fischer at Humboldt University in Berlin in May 2000. It was a call to Europeans to move ‘…onwards to the completion of European integration. A step backwards, even just stand still or contentment with what has been achieved, would demand a fatal price of all EU [European Union] Member States and of all those who want to become Members’ (Fischer 2000). A few years on, the EU enlarged eastwards and southeastward but Europeans seem left behind. The positive image of the EU has been declining across all its member states since the economic and financial crisis hit its peak in 2008, and more than half of the citizens (55 percent) assert that their voice does not count in the EU (EB85 2016). While studies have so far focused on the spiral of Euroscepticism emerging across traditional and new media with negativity bias and misrepresentation (Galpin and Trenz 2017), and the persistence and embeddedness of Euroscepticism as opposition to the EU (Usherwood and Startin 2013), this article investigates the discourse of Euroscepticism and the emotions attached to it.
