If (media) debates are treated as more than a treasure trove of isolated topics, actors and positions, a systematic connection of relational content and empirical network analysis is needed. Such a combination reveals the interrelations and the argumentative structure in debates. The article therefore investigates how data can be collected by means of relational content analysis, more specifically claims analysis, and how these data can be analysed by employing instruments of network analysis. Taking the debate on EU enlargement in two German quality newspapers as an example, it is shown how this combination of methods reveals the structure of debates (lines of communication, conflict lines and discourse coalitions) as well as the position of single actors (their framing, prestige and agenda setting).
