Europe after the European election – AEI – American Enterprise Institute: Freedom, Opportunity, Enterprise18th May 2019
While populism continues to be a dominant factor shaping Europe’s politics, the simplistic overuse of the label often obfuscates Europe’s actual political dynamics. Rather than populism, what makes the 2019 European election so significant is the degree of political fragmentation that will likely characterize the results. In all likelihood, power will continue to shift away from the once-dominant political families on the center right and the center left. How will that affect the composition of the future European Commission? Will it make the EU more difficult to govern? And why should Americans care?
Join Amb. Santiago Cabanas, Ben Judah, and Yascha Mounk — alongside AEI’s Dalibor Rohac and Stan Veuger — as they discuss Europe’s challenges and the way forward.
Join the conversation on social media with #EuropeAfterEuropeanElection.
