“Return to your Alma Mater”: Is the EU Undemocratic?– Simon Hix in conversation with Hanspeter Kriesi
Much has been made, since the parliamentary election last year, which supposedly decided the president of the European Commission, of a “democratic deficit” in the EU. As part of our “Return to your Alma Mater” series we caught up with Professor Simon Hix, London School of Economics, down the line from his home in London. A former EUI researcher, Professor Hix has written extensively on the subject. He talked to our very own Professor Hanspeter Kriesi, the Stein Rokkan Chair of Comparative Politics.
Listen to the podcast where they discuss the EU elections, accountability and the future of democracy in the EU.
Introductory and conclusive remarks by Nicholas Barrett.
