Negative Europeanization: European issues in the Italian elections

Abstract : The 2013 elections had several of the features of a ‘Europeanised’ contest. Taking place against the background of a severe institutional crisis, they saw political parties pay substantial attention to European issues broadly defined, and witnessed an unprecedented attempt by a ‘European-level party’, the European People’s Party, to shape their outcome. The latter must therefore be analysed from a European perspective. Negative aspects appear to have prevailed, both in the discourse of parties and in the choices of voters. As far as policies are concerned, the elections show a clear rejection of the fiscal austerity policy advocated by European Union spokespersons since the outbreak of the crisis. As regards the governance of the European Union, the predominantly negative character of this Europeanisation process may be a source of instability in the future.
