The European Studies Council presents:
Professor Duncan McDonnell, Griffith University: “The Coming of Age for Radical Right Populism in the European Parliament.”
Professor McDonnell will discuss the recent surge of radical right populist parties and the electoral impact of the phenomenon at the European level. In light of the upcoming European elections there has been a lot of debate about the challenge that mainstream parties may face if radical right-wing forces manage to win a sizable number of seats in the European Parliament. Such an outcome may pose obstacles for further integration among nation-states at the legislative level and is expected to significantly alter the power balance within the EU.
