The final report of our project "Anti EU-rhetoric versus own national interests? National populism and its reception in Central Europe“ highlights the main results of our surveys, depicts some of the citizens’ views and finally draws conclusions and policy recommendations on how to tackle the challenges ahead in order to contribute to a constructive European debate based on common values and mutual understanding instead of a pure national view that in the end leads to divisiveness and the loss of long-term achievements of the European integration process.
Europäische Fragen, europäische Lösungen 2018 und 2019. Paul Schmidt spricht mit Xaver Forthuber und den HörerInnen über Europa. Worüber entscheiden die Bürger und Bürgerinnen, wenn im kommenden Frühjahr die Wahlen zum EU-Parlament anstehen?
The book "Direct Democracy in the EU: The Myth of a Citizens’ Union" is part of the 'Towards a Citizens’ Union' project and is the product of collaboration with 20 renowned think tanks from the European Policy Institutes Network (EPIN) including the Austrian Society for European Politics (ÖGfE). It is the first of three publications that will also cover the state of representative democracy in the EU and the accountability of democratic institutions.
