Getting a Grip on. Party-Based Euroscepticism in the Context of Positive Party Attitudes Towards the EU

No.4(2007)

Abstract
After ten years of research on party based euroscepticism, political science still has not succeed in creating a respected and accepted typology of euroscepticsm. This article tries both to summarize and review this research up to the present and subsequently propose a new innovative typology. This typology is based upon two phenomena. The first consists of the incorporation of positive party attitudes towards European integration. The second pillar of the new typology is the understanding of European integration as a variable phenomenon where support cannot be identified with the maintenance of the current EU model.

Keywords:
