Title Background and Uses of Research on Political Communication in Portugal. From the Carnation Revolution to the Treaty of Lisbon Summary During the last decade, a lot of research on political communication in Portugal has been done. Starting from three key dates in recent Portuguese history: the Carnation Revolution on April 25th 1974; the signing of the Adhesion Treaty of Portugal to the European Community on June 12th 1985; and the signature of the Treaty of Lisbon on December 13th 2007, some of the main contributions in this field are analysed. This article confirms there is a parallelism between works done in this field, their methodological evolution, and the extension of the uses of electoral marketing. Such parallelism is ratified by the international prominence achieved by some of the most relevant Portuguese politicians. Keywords Political Communication, Teleceremony, Carnation Revolution, Portuguese Electoral Marketing, European Construction Process,
