The presentation is a keynote lecture given in a conference organized by Stockholm University on Populism, political representation, media language and power (19-20 November 2020) by the research group Rompol (Research group on political discourses in Romance-speaking countries). The aim is to analyze the claim for RIC (Citizen Initiative Referenda) in French newspapers and magazines. This demand has been formulated during the protests of the Yellow vests movement between November 2018 and March 2020. Then, the focus is on the methodological aspect as the presentation crosses discourse analysis with public policies analysis to understand how RIC emerged as a slogan in the French political discourse.
