Le vote des parlementaires européens élus en France sur 21 enjeux clefs (2009 - 2014)

A research by Yves Bertoncini, Thierry Chopin, Lucie Marnas, Claire Versini et Virginie Timmerman from Notre Europe - Jacques Delors Institute and the Mouvement Européen France allows readers to familiarise with the positions of the Members of the European Parliament elected in France in 2009. Vote analysis were also produced for each one of France's eight Euro-constituencies.

The publication analyses 21 key votes that took place in the 2009-2014 European Parliament, using VoteWatch Europe data.

15 votes that shaped the 7th European Parliament (2009-2014) - VoteWatch Europe-Notre Europe joint research project


VoteWatch Europe and Notre Europe - Jacques Delors Institute have joined forces together with think tanks and research institutes from 20 EU member states for an analysis of "15 key votes in the European Parliament that shaped European and national politics 2009-2014" in order to raise awareness of the issues at stake in the elections and to make democratic politics more visible. The publications and events (from March to May 2014) in the framework of this project address the following questions: What types of cleavages exist in the European Parliament? How do the political groups behave? How do national politics and the European Parliament connect? When does nationality win over ideology?

A syntesis of the project can be found here.

Additionally, each national partner analysed some of these issues voted by the European Parliament in 2009-2014. See a list of issues and national partners here.

Find here the national reports by national think-tanks and research institutes.

A textbook on EU politics uses VoteWatch in practical exercises

politicsofeu Professors Herman Lelieveldt and Sebastiaan Princen from the Universiteit Utrecht in the Netherlands published in 2011 the textbook "The Politics of the European Union", edited by Cambridge University Press. A website related to the texbook provides some tools to better understand the EU's actual operation and hence apply the insights from the book. Among these, the authors included a practical exercise on "How MEP's vote: political cohesion across groups and policy areas", based on data from VoteWatch Europe.
