The Rise of ‘Outsider’ Parties in the 2014 EU Elections

Source: Henry Jackson Society

From Executive Summary:

In the wake of the Eurozone crisis, the rise of ‘outsider’ parties from both ends of the political spectrum has increased concerns over the future viability of the European project. In some countries, traditionally fringe parties have been able to force their way into the political mainstream. Ahead of the elections between 22 and 25 May 2014, which look likely to test this at a European level, this report examines these rising political parties.

The report identifies 25 parties in 19 EU member states which belong to the fringe left-wing GUE-NGL, right-wing EFD and non-aligned NI blocs within the European Parliament. All have been predicted either to win 10% (or more) of the national vote or to rank in the top three most successful parties/coalitions in the most recent national opinion polls (as of 1 April 2014). The report provides comprehensive profiles of these ‘outsider’ parties and analyses key trends found among them.

    By now, we are all no doubt familiar with the concept of the "changing role of information professionals", and all that this entails. What are the skills and characteristics needed to survive this transition? As internal clients become more savvy about accessing different types of information, there is an opportunity for information professionals. This is to harness their deep expertise, and become consultants to those who now have the tools in their hands, but not necessarily the knowledge about how to use them.
