This chapter offers concrete guidelines to types of data and research techniques useful for carrying out discourse analysis in the context of European Union politics. The chapter discusses the pros and cons of available data for the purpose of analysing discourses on EU politics including documents, surveys, interviews, ‘natural occurring talk’ and non-linguistic material. The chapter further addresses the advantages and challenges to research techniques capturing discourse, including content analysis, computer-assisted text analysis, and the analysis of problem perceptions. The chapter argues in favour of combining types of data and research techniques depending on the research purpose at hand.
