Summary

Were the 1999 elections a watershed for the European Parliament? Did they represent the final step towards a federal Europe, or the end of European Union democracy? This book examines the elections within each of the 15 member states, producing an analysis of their impact upon the Parliament's party style. The contributors speculate on the future of Euro-elections and offer ideas as to how the electoral system might be reformed through e-voting to encourage greater participation.
