Contesting Future Integration: The Rise of Populism and Euroscepticism in Contemporary Europe

Aktivitet: Tale eller præsentationForedrag og mundtlige bidrag

Michael Bossetta - Inviteret foredragsholder

Brexit, the results of the 2014 European Parliament elections, the increasing support for extremist parties in many Member States - each of these phenomena demonstrate a popular backlash to future European integration. Calls of ‘power to the people’ are echoing across Europe and signal a crisis of legitimacy for national and EU level political actors. Disseminating results from his own research Michael Bossetta will in this EURECO lecture engage the following questions: Why are populists and Eurosceptics gaining traction now? How are mainstream politicians responding to these threats? How are digital communication technologies like social media empowering ‘the people’ to promote an anti-establishment message from below? What does populism and Euroscepticism mean for the future of Europe?
