Euroscepticism and the future of the EU. Think tank Europa

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Euroscepticism – or sceptical and negative public attitudes towards the EU – has been in the political and academic spotlight across Europe for more than a decade. But despite its pan-European reach, there is growing consensus that Euroscepticism differs markedly both across countries and social groups, and over time.

This year, a key election year for the EU, and the year of Brexit, keeping up-to-date with the different dimensions and explanations of Euroscepticism, and the underlying causes of people’s preferences towards European integration, will be key to understanding the political battles that lie ahead.

In this mini-conference organized by the University of York and Think Tank EUROPA, scholars of Euroscepticism and Neuropolitics will present their latest findings and discuss the implications for the future of the EU: What are the key drivers of Euroscepticism? How to understand the impact of recent crises in the EU on public attitudes? And how are emotions, such as anxiety or indifference, influencing people’s preferences towards European integration?
