Renaissance konservativer Werte in Österreich: Welche Rolle spielt die Zivilgesellschaft?

Activity: Talk or presentationScience to science


Liberal values are increasingly under dispute. What role does civil society (CS) take within this broader development? By analyzing accounts on civil society in Austrian public media during an authoritarian shift, this paper investigates whether the legitimacy of liberal vs. conservative segments of CS changes. About 900,000 articles from ideologically diverse newspapers and the most influential television channel are evaluated using corpus linguistics methods. First analyses corroborate the presence of a conservative shift and an increasingly morally charged public discourse in Austria, however, unlike in Eastern European countries, this shift does not appear to be centrally promoted from within CS.
