Nils Klim Prize Lecture 2012 by Professor Sara Hobolt: "Blaming Europe? Attribution of Responsibility in the European Union".
“Who is to blame?” is a familiar question that emerges in response to events such as the Eurozone crisis, but the complex multi-level government structures in the European Union make it an increasingly difficult question to answer. In this lecture, Hobolt will address the question of when and why citizens blame and credit EU institutions for policy failures and successes, presenting findings from both Europe-wide surveys and experimental studies.
Introduction by Elisabeth Ivarsflaten, Associate Professor, Department of Comparative Politics at University of Bergen.
"My primary research interests concern the functioning of democracy in contemporary Europe. I am interested in how, when, and why citizens’ preferences are represented at national and European levels of government. In particular, I study the interplay between citizens and political parties in shaping opinions and translating these opinions into policy outcomes." Read more.
