Title European migrants on the Costa del Sol: an analysis of the consumption of foreign media by the German audience in the process of European integration Summary This article analyses how the foreign-language media published on the Costa del Sol for the German population living in this region affect their process of European integration and construction. The aims are to determine the socio-demographic characteristics of this active audience, to identify their media diet and to analyse the role played by the media they consume in the integration of the German resident population into Spanish society, especially from the point of view of the process of European construction. Surveys and discussion groups make up the core methodology of this study. The main conclusion is that these media help them to an extent in their process of integration, although this role could be further extended if the media covered the information demands and the problems that hinder the residents’ integration. Furthermore, the Germans living on the Costa del Sol display a strong pro-European spirit. Keywords German residents; European integration; media of diaspora; foreign residents.
