Few months before the 2014 European elections, Yves Bertoncini tries to foresee what could be the effects of a populist parties’ upswing in the next European Parliament, on the basis of the elements of expertise and information already available. He answers 4 questions:
1 – What are the populist parties engaged in the campaign for the new European Parliament?
2 – Will there be an upswing of the populist parties in the new European Parliament?
3 – In which politic groups will the populists sit in the new European Parliament?
4 – What will be the impact of the populist upswing on the European Parliament and the election campaign?
His analysis is based on the Tribune “European Elections: less abstention, more populism?” and on the Policy paper “What political balance of power in the next European Parliament?” wrote with Valentin Kreilinger.
