Speaker(s): Dr Matthew Goodwin, Peter Kellner
Chair: Professor Maurice Fraser
Recorded on 30 January 2014 in Old Theatre, Old Building.
‘Eurosceptic‘ parties all around Europe are gathering momentum in advance of the European Parliament elections in May. But how wide and how deep does their support actually run? And has hostility towards the EU become a surrogate for other discontents?
Matthew Goodwin is associate professor at the University of Nottingham, where his research focuses on radical right parties, immigration and Euroscepticism. He is co-author of the new book, Revolt on the Right: Explaining Public Support for the Radical Right in Britain (with Robert Ford).
Peter Kellner has been president of YouGov since 2007 and is the former political editor of New Statesman.
