General description

Recent evidence points in the direction of EU becoming increasingly politicized and salient in domestic politics, with Europe as an issue also affecting the performance of parties in national and European parliamentary elections. Europe may thus not be in the minds of the citizens most of the time, but public opinion constrains elites and parties more than before. The objective of the course is to analyse why and how citizens and political parties oppose European integration. The course consists of lectures, seminars and an essay. In the seminars the students are expected to produce an essay and an oral presentation on a topic related to Euroscepticism.
