Democratic Politics in a European Union Under Stress

This chapter shows that the euro crisis has been boosting the Europeanization of the political debate in EU member states, but that Europeanization is not coterminous with politicization. With respect to politicization, the results are mixed: while the debate has been exceptionally salient and has contributed to the visibility of Europe in the politics of the European nation states, it has not accelerated the transfer of European politics into ‘mass politics’. The debate on the euro crisis has been dominated by executive actors, in particular by supranational actors and by the German executive.

Keywords:   euro crisis, Europeanization, media, politicization, political debate
