SNS/Sieps: Shaping Tomorrow’s Europe: Potential Outcomes and Consequences of the European Elections

Seminar Thu 2 May 2024
time and place

Thursday 2 May 2024, 11:30–12:45
SNS, Jakobsbergsgatan 18, Stockholm. A light lunch is served before the seminar.

The 2024 European Parliament elections take place in a partly new political landscape in many countries across Europe. Professor Simon Hix discusses current forecasts and how various outcomes may affect European-level policies and trajectories.

The outcome of the elections in June will determine the political balance of the European Parliament, and thus also affect the direction that EU policy making will take over the next five years. With the parliament poised to make a significant shift to the right, this seminar discusses the potential consequences for voting coalitions and policy outcomes against the background of a SIEPS report on this topic by Simon Hix and Abdul Noury.

The seminar will be held in English.


Simon Hix, Professor and Stein Rokkan Chair in Comparative Politics at European University Institute (EUI). He is also an author of several books on the EU such as “What’s Wrong with the European Union and How to Fix It”, “Democratic Politics in the European Parliament” and “The Political System of the European Union”.
