Graduate students from the University of Southern California’s Sol Price School of Public Policy presented the results of their capstone project entitled Austria and the Refugee Crisis: An Analysis of American Sentiment in Social versus Print to Embassy staff on December 2, 2016.

The research team executed the project by utilizing a mixed-methods approach of sentiment analysis paired with content analysis to measure content from both American newspapers and American social media users. The results are part of an ongoing investigation into the contemporary Austrian image in the United States by the Austrian Press- and Information Service in Washington, D.C.
