By choosing to follow one of the education programmes offered by the Institute for European Studies, students enter a university situated in the heart of Europe, close to where most of the European institutions are and where related governmental actors and civil society representatives revolve. They thus benefit from the participation of EU officials, policy makers and practitioners in the Institute’s teaching, research and academic activities, including the numerous conferences it organizes. In addition to its teaching and research activities, the IEE has indeed constantly promoted the dialogue with EU institutions, and provided a forum for critical debate on the future of European integration.


New Book Release - “Euroscepticism, from the margins to the mainstream”

F1_medium.gif
Special Issue of the International Political Science Review – vol.36, n°3, June 2015
Guest Editors: Dr. Nathalie Brack (FNRS, Cevipol, Université libre de Bruxelles) and Dr. Nicholas Startin (University of Bath).

With the advent of the Eurozone crisis, Euroscepticism has become increasingly mainstreamed. This is discernible across Europe at the level of public opinion, among political parties and civil society groups, within the EU institutions themselves and in terms of changing and more challenging media discourses. Against the backdrop of the 2014 European elections and a potential referendum on UK membership of the EU, the purpose of this article is to introduce an evolving debate.

It begins with discussion of the ‘state of the art’ with regard to the study of Euroscepticism, before focusing on the significance of the latest European elections themselves. It then provides an overview of the various articles in the collection, explaining their relevance in helping to unravel the complexity and diversity of opposition towards ‘Europe’ and the extent to which Euroscepticism has become part of the mainstream with regard to European political debate.
