The stakes have never been higher at the European Elections. Pollsters and politicos predict a major shake-up of the political landscape if anti-European, nationalist parties succeed at the ballot.
What kind of European Parliament will emerge? Can centre-right parties sustain threats from the anti-immigrant, anti-EU, anti-establishment, and how will the centre-left maintain its relevance? What success can the Greens, ALDE and La Republique en Marche achieve with their pro-European agenda?
Launching a forecast of the election outcome based on a new YouGov poll commissioned by the European Council on Foreign Relations, our distinguished panel will equip you with new and exclusive analysis on EU elections forecasting, uncovering the next European Parliament’s shifting power balance, coalition constellations and EU’s capacity to act effectively on the world stage – from international trade, climate change and rule of law, to international security.
