Some words about the background of this visualisation:

The visualisation is based on a SWOT analysis. All delegates to the "sound of europe" symposion were questioned on their opinions on the strengths, weaknesses, chances and risks of the European Community.

In detail, each delegate had to chose a keyword and write an explaining sentence on what is in her/his opinion, for example, a strength of europe. The semantic network contains both keywords and sentences and is determined by two rules:
The kewords have been translated to german, the sentences are in their original language.
a list of most frequently quoted keywords can be found here.

What does it tell us?
If we compare the networks for strengths and weaknesses, we see from the shape of the network, that there is more consensus on the strenths of europe than on its weaknesses.
