Sammanfattning

Event publics are an empirical category that has hitherto remained untouched by the recent interest in the viability of a shared political public sphere at the European level. However, such event publics – understood as organized face-to-face encounters constituting concrete speaker-audience relationships – may turn out to play a relevant role in the construction of such a European public sphere. Taking its twin points of departure in the ongoing debate on the viability of a European public sphere as well as in the European Commission’s Plan D (and associated documents), this paper explores the role and deliberative potential of organized event publics from the perspective of the European public sphere conceptualized as a transnational community of communication. Do the framing processes observable when the Commission “goes local” support the claim that a transnational communicative context is emerging?
