PSSI's Jiri Schneider commented on EU election for CEPI

30.05.2014

PSSI's Senior Fellow and Director of Special Projects Jiri Schneider have commented on recent EU election for CEPI. CEPI asked three regional experts what the election results mean for the EU and Central Europe. The article includes opinions of: Pawel Swieboda, President of demosEUROPA: Centre for European Strategy, Warsaw, Mr. Schneider and Jozef Bátora, Associate Professor and Jean Monnet Chair, Institute of European Studies and International Relations, Comenius University, Bratislava.

While all three recognise the challenges that the rise of Euro-sceptic parties in some key member-states poses, they all argue that the real issue is how the mainstream parties and the EU institutions respond to this challenge.
