European elections [What Think Tanks are Thinking]

2019 European elections

Citizens of the European Union go the polls in May 2019 in elections to the European Parliament which many analysts say may be the most important ever. Commentators are currently focused on the prospective performance of anti-establishment parties and movements, many of which run on Eurosceptic platforms. The vote will also indicate if the so-called Spitzenkandidatenprocess, launched by the European political parties five years ago, has become an established practice. If followed as in 2014, the candidate from the political force that receives the highest number of seats in the European elections would become the President of the European Commission.

This note offers links to reports and commentaries from some major international think-tanks and research institutes on the forthcoming European elections and related issues.
