Anti-European and populist political forces are getting stronger across Europe. As the authors of a recently published European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) report also underline: ‘With anti- Europeans on their way to winning more than one-third of seats in the next European Parliament, the stakes in the May 2019 elections are unusually high’ (Dennison and Zerka, 2019: 1). The present paper focusses on the impact of these dynamics on the Union’s external relations. It does not aim to discuss the full spectrum of EU external policies, but only concentrates on a few geographic and policy areas where this impact is particularly pronounced.
The Hungarian Europe Society held an international conference supported by the Friedrich Naumann Stiftung für die Freiheit entitled "European Elections 2019 - Renewing the Political Agenda for a United Europe" on 12-13 April 2019 at the Ibis Styles Budapest Center (Rákóczi út 58, H-1074 Budapest).
