Blaming Europe? Citizens, Governments and the Media

Download: Audio, Slides

Speaker(s): Professor Sara B Hobolt

Recorded on 5 December 2012 in Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House.

“Who is to blame?” has become a familiar question in response to the economic crisis that is sweeping Europe. Professor Hobolt discusses when and why citizens, the media, and national governments blame the European Union for policy failures, and considers the consequences for democracy in Europe.

This event is part of the eurocrisis@lse series.

Sara Hobolt is the Sutherland Chair in European Institutions at the European Institute, LSE.
