The Routledge Handbook of European Elections explores the multifaceted dimension of the European Parliament’s (EP) electoral contests across the European Community and European Union since 1979.

After setting a general empirical and theoretical framework, this collaborative project presents original contributions from leading experts from virtually all the corners of the European Union. Each case study adheres to a common template that makes it easy to compare data, methodology and outcomes.

Every country chapter includes:

  • a brief geopolitical profile and historical background of the Member State;
  • a glance at the national political landscape;
  • a short account of the main political parties, including their attitude toward the European Union;
  • a section on public opinion and European integration;
  • a summary of electoral systems;
  • an overview of all EP and national elections;
  • an in-depth analysis of the 2009 EP electoral race;
  • an overall theoretical interpretation of European elections.

A comparative chapter closes the Handbook followed by an Epilogue focussing on the 2014 EP contest with a detailed analysis of the newly elected European Assembly in terms of political group and gender compostion.

The volume aims to enhance readers’ understanding of the European Parliament and revive their interest in the European integration process. By providing a wide range of national and European facts and figures, this investigation represents a comprehensive reference guide to scholars, practitioners, and students of the European Parliament, European elections, political parties, European Union and comparative politics.
