This data set contains data of five European case studies of narratives of migration and their embedded justice claims within the European Union Migration System of Governance (EUMSG), analyzed within the framework of project GLOBUS. The analysis focuses on the way national newspapers have covered and discussed key political events related to European politics and migration dynamics between 2014 and 2018. The results of this analysis have been published in a special issue of The International Spectator (2019, volume 54, issue 3, pp. 1-106). A corpus of several Italian, French, Hungarian, UK and Norwegian newspapers has been examined. For each national case study data were collected from two weeks before to one week after three key political events between January 2014 – January 2018: • the 2014 European Parliament elections (22-25 May 2014); • the EU-Turkey Statement/agreement/deal (18 March 2016); • a key ‘national moment’ related to migration within the designated timespan: - the end of the Italian Mare Nostrum operation in the Mediterranean, 21 - 28 November 2016 (Italy); - the French 2017 national elections, 9 - 30 April 2017 (France); - the Hungarian “quota referendum”, 17 September - 8 October 2016 (Hungary); - the “Brexit” referendum, 20 - 26 June 2016 (UK); - the “Storskog event”, 16 -30 November 2015 (Norway). Moreover, data from a non-politically relevant period (“eventless”) were collected to be used as a control and to compare narratives of migration and their (potential) politicisation across different contexts.
