Abstract

The 2014 elections to the European Parliament represent an important moment in the relationship between the EU and Eurosceptic voices. At one level, the increasing numbers of Eurosceptic MEPs reflects a generalised discontent in electorates (albeit not all of it particularly directed to the EU), a discontent that will have a higher profile in the EP’s work for the next five years. At another, the Spitzenkandidaten process has introduced an element of politicisation to the Commission that potentially creates new opportunities for eurosceptics to challenge the process of European integration.
