Euroscepticism and the war in Ukraine

The Russian aggression against Ukraine has dramatically influenced the political scene and public opinion in Europe. The war has also deepened the divide between Eurosceptic parties which sometimes differ radically concerning their attitude towards Russia. In contrast, the predominance of hard security on the political agenda in certain countries has made the EU less attractive. Meanwhile, a pro-Russian mood maintained popularity among considerable social groups across several countries despite Russia’s aggression. During our conference, we would like to discuss the impact of the war in Ukraine on the social reception of illiberal and Eurosceptic narratives in Europe and the relationships between Eurosceptic political forces. We will pay particular attention to Italy, North Macedonia, Poland, and Slovenia. The debate about the phenomena in these four countries will allow us to show the differences and similarities between them and draw some relevant lessons for the entire continent.
