Politics and Publics focuses on three main sets of issues: attitudes towards European integration, media and politics, and democracy and justice.

Key questions addressed under these headings include: How do sociological and generational divisions among citizens in different member states influence support for and opposition to European integration, as well as for populist parties and movements of the radical right and left? How do current transformations in the communication and media landscape, including the rise of new digital technologies, influence the formation and behaviour of different types of publics, both within party-political and non or anti-governmental spheres? How do legal and constitutional developments affect the EU’s ‘dual democracy’ in which Europeans are citizens of the Union as well as their own member states?
