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?

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
