Populist right-wing regimes can paralyse the decision-making and common stance in the EU, while the same populist forces were blaming the community for being a lame duck.
Editors: Dániel Mikecz
At the end of 2020, the world and Europe tried to combat the coronavirus and looked for solutions to avoid a healthcare and economic crisis. The populist regimes in Hungary and Poland hindered the joint actions of the European Union. At that time, it seemed that if the new Euroscepticism remained unchallenged, it could seriously hinder European integration. Nevertheless, the war in Ukraine changed the unity of the populist regimes in Hungary and Poland in the early months of 2022. The war in Ukraine will certainly change European politics, yet it is unclear yet how it will exactly affect the content and opportunities of Euroscepticism.
This volume aims to reflect upon the recent developments in Europe and tries to understand how the war in Ukraine changed Euroscepticism.
