Bracing for a Storm? The 2024 EU Elections’ Implications for EU Anti-racist Policy-making

Polls indicate that (far-right) parties advancing migration and diversity-critical positions likely gain electoral support in the upcoming EU elections in June 2024. As a result, far-right parties are likely to increase the number of seats in their political group ‘Identity and Democracy’ in the European Parliament. This can have various effects on EU(ropean) anti-racism policies and civil society’s activism

In this panel discussion, researchers delve into the insights gleaned from previous instances of radical-right electoral successes and their repercussions on anti-racist policies and mobilization. Engaging with a panel of experts specializing in EU anti-racism policies and civil society, the conversation extends to contemplate the post-election landscape. The focus shifts to the potential trajectories of anti-racism within the EU and at the Member State level, exploring the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
