Political Parties and Party Politics

  • Chapter

Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics book series (PSEUP)

Abstract

This chapter examines the Europeanization of British party politics. It is within the domain of party politics that debates about the EU have often been at their most intense, yet, compared to particular policy areas, party politics tend not to be the subject of analyses of Europeanization. This is surprising because, as Hix (2005: 180) points out, ‘EU politics is party politics’ not least because it is the parties that provide a vital link between the national and EU arenas. This chapter aims to address this analytical gap by identifying the domestic consequences of European integration for British political parties.
