Activiteit: Talk or presentation at a conference


On May 25 2014 Belgium organized elections at three levels: regional, federal and European. This paper investigates to what extent the vote for the European level was inspired by issues related to the European Union. Using data of the PartiRep 2014 electoral survey, we are able to see that Eurosceptic voters do vote for radical parties of the left and of the right, but they also vote for these parties at the other levels. We conclude that Europe is quite difficult to find in the Belgian multi-level elections of 2014.
