The 2014 European elections

What innovations did the 2014 European elections bring? How did the top candidates shape the election and election campaign? What do the protest parties' gains and the high number of non-voters mean? The articles in this volume discuss these and other central aspects of the 2014 European elections. In particular, the focus is on individual member states, the effects of the financial and debt crisis, the role of European parties and the consequences of the election for governance at the European level. In addition, the volume includes rare non-European perspectives on the election (outcome) and the contributions of two Presidents of the European Parliament (Martin Schulz and Klaus Hänsch).
