The rise of Euroscepticism

The Stream looks at the emergence of anti-EU parties ahead of the European parliamentary elections.

Is the very idea of the European Union under threat? EU Parliament elections are coming up and, according to opinion polls, the far-right is projected to do well. Right-wing Eurosceptic parties have been on the rise in recent years, but ahead of these elections there are renewed concerns about their impact on the European Union. We look at what may happen if the EU Parliament gets a sizable coalition of far-right Eurosceptics at 1930GMT.
