Representing Europeans: a pragmatic approach

LSE European Institute Perspectives on Europe public lecture and book launch

Date: Thursday 6 June 2013 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: New Theatre, East Building
Speaker: Professor Richard Rose
Chair: Anthony Teasdale

Less than a year away from the 2014 European Parliament elections, Professor Richard Rose talks about his new book on democracy in Europe, Representing Europeans: A Pragmatic Approach (OUP). With the European Union now impacting more and more on people's lives, he analyses how democratic the EU institutions are, how far they respond to voters' concerns, how voters see European elections and referenda, and how the EU institutions might yet be reformed.

Richard Rose is one of the world's leading political scientists. He founded the Centre for the Study of Public Policy at University of Strathcyde in 1976, and is Visiting Professor at the European University Institute, Florence. He has published more than 40 books and lectured in 45 countries, with writings translated into 17 languages. He received the Sir Isaiah Berlin Lifetime Achievement Prize of the UK Political Studies Association in 2009.
