In June 2024, citizens of the European Union (EU) will vote in the European Parliament elections – two years into Russia’s war in Ukraine and on European values, after the COVID-19 pandemic and the finalisation of Brexit, and with the possibility of Donald Trump winning the presidential election in the United States (USA) later in the year.

In a turbulent geopolitical environment, the European Parliament elections will reshape the political landscape in Brussels, where traditional parties are being challenged and an increasing tilt towards right-wing governance is unmistakable. The current European Commission has adopted several major legislative initiatives, but a new Commission may set new priorities and take a different political direction.

In the lead-up to the elections, this Forum section focuses on some of the issues that will take centre stage for voters and define the next phase of European politics.
