This paper focuses on how national identities have recently been negotiated in different European countries (EU member states, one EU candidate state, and one EU opt-out member), mainly in relation to EU identity, refugees, religion, and LGBT rights. We will document instances of media discourse, revolving especially around digital media, to point out the quite dissimilar ideas on who ‘we’ are and the ideologies underpinning various ‘us’ versus ‘them’ binaries applied in relation to different social groups using strategies of Othering in the construction of national identities.
