HEPPsplaining the European Parliamentary Elections results in 2024

How did the European vote take place in the member states, what are its contextual roots and consequences. What will happen in the formation of the party groups in the European Parliament. Having studied the euroelections for the past four weeks on audiovisual social media, the international research group HEPPsplains.

HEPP research group introduces the current research conducted in European Commission funded research groups and in the Finnish Research Council co-funded consortium in the European Parliament Elections in 2024. This is an effort that covers ten countries around Europe: France, Germany, Bulgaria, Croatia, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Poland, Finland and Sweden.
