European Parliament election 2024 – trends and projections

Apr 17, 2024 | 07:00 PM - 08:00 PM

On Wednesday 17 April 2024 from 7.00pm to 8.00pm CET, Prof Simon Hix and Einstein BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellow Prof Tarik Abou-Chadi will be discussing the European Parliament election 2024 on Zoom. Recent trends in elections and opinion polls throughout the EU indicate a significant rightward shift, with the populist right expected to emerge as a main winner in the 2024 European Parliament elections. This political realignment, amid internal and external challenges for the European Union, could have profound implications for EU policy, including environmental and foreign policies.

Simon and Tarik will delve into the dynamics of the upcoming elections, focusing on how they reflect broader shifts within European democracies and party competition. They will also examine the changing levels of support for the European Union and address the declining influence of social democratic parties.

Prof Simon Hix joined the European University Institute on 1 September 2021 as Stein Rokkan Chair in Comparative Politics. Simon holds a Ph.D. in Political and Social Science from the European University Institute (1995) and was for many years a Professor at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Prof Tarik Abou-Chadi is an Associate Professor in European Union and Comparative European Politics at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. Before joining Nuffield, he was Assistant Professor at the department of political science at the University of Zurich. Tarik holds a PhD from Humboldt University Berlin and hosts and produces the podcast Transformation of European Politics.
