The confidence in the European project (2013:9epa)


The confidence in the European Union project is waning because distinctions between political and economic liberalism are not clearly defined, Sverker Gustavsson argues in this European Policy Analysis. Political parties, interest groups and opinion-makers should therefore explain the significance of the project and shed light on inconsistencies. Otherwise it will become even more difficult for the citizens to see the added value of EU membership, the author argues.

The publication is part of SIEPS´ research project The political system of the European Union.

Note: The publication is in Swedish only.

Sverker Gustavsson is Professor in Political Science at Uppsala University.
