dc.description.abstract The European Union (EU) is facing a profound political crisis of leadership, legitimacy, and purpose. This article provides an analysis of these key dimensions of crisis. It does so by examining the way in which they intersect and their impact on the EU’s institutional architecture, on the politicization of the European public sphere, on the wider dynamics of representation that underpin these processes, and on the political systems and polities of the member states. Drawing on such analysis, we assess the 2014 European Parliament election with reference to the findings of the six articles included in this collection. We conclude with a critical reflection on the competing and often piecemeal ‘visions of Europe’ that emerge from the studies in this volume and the challenges they pose to the EU project. en

dc.exception.reason The manuscript was not deposited in on DORA within 3 months of the publication date because I joined the university only in August 2016. This falls within one of the reasons provided in the REF exception list, namely: a. "the individual whose output is being submitted to REF was unable to secure use of a repository at the point of acceptance" en
