From the Eurozone crisis to the migration crisis, the EU has “muddled through” various crises. But these crises have shaped the public’s attitude towards the EU and mobilised political parties in opposition to the EU. Although it has been suggested that opposition towards the EU is a temporary trend, Euroscepticism now seems to have become persistent and lasting.

Open Europe and academics from the University of Sussex-based European Parties Elections and Referendums Network (EPERN) in partnership with the European Social and Research Council 'UK in a Changing Europe' initiative, are bringing together prominent speakers to discuss Euroscepticism and to consider:

The effect of the various crises on Euroscepticism across Europe (including in France, Germany, and Poland)
How Euroscepticism in Europe might impact the Brexit negotiations
Where Brexit has impacted Euroscepticism
