Sprache des Titels:
Different groups bestow different meaning to the same events. From the obvious cases that include the winners and losers of the same game up the interpretation of historic events. The following article explores this concept by tracing how the war on terror is framed in the US New York Times and the Austrian Die Presse, trying to gain an understanding at which points the meaning attributed to constructs like democracy and citizenship align and at which they do not. This is done by employing a Durkheimian approach, using his concepts from the elementary forms of religious life to explain the results from the content analysis that spans the years 2001 to 2011.
