Eurosceptic parties and coalition problems in Greece
At the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog, Ryan Bakker, Jon Polk and I wrote a post about how Euroscepticism has made for strange bedfellows in European coalitions. In Greece, for instance, the main theme that unites the leftist Syriza and their coalition partner, the right-wing ANEL, is their opposition to the EU. To broaden this beyond Greece, we use the recently released 2014 CHES data. In doing so, we present expert survey data on salience of anti-corruption politics, which is the first time we’ve included these data alongside the ideological and issue position questions in the CHES. Check it out!
Over at the LSE EUROPP blog, my friends Ryan Bakker, Jon Polk and I wrote a piece on mapping the European party system. It is a short version of our JOP article, “The European Common Space”.
With the launch of my new website (thanks to @tofias over at asocial), I am also dipping a toe into the blogging world. As my main page says, I am mainly interested in European regionalists (think Scottish or Basque nationalists), party politics, and European Union politics. So that’s what I’ll write about here. If you’d rather hear about Kentucky basketball and my eclectic musical taste, follow me on twitter @sethkjolly. At first, the blog will mainly be summaries of my published work and works in progress. We’ll see how it goes from there.
