Hamřík & Kaniok on Institutionalisation of the Spitzenkandidaten Procedure
Lukáš Hamřík and Petr Kaniok published a new article in the Journal of Contemporary European Research. The article analyses the motives behind the institutionalisation of the Spitzenkandidaten procedure. The authors conclude that the emergence of the Spitzenkandidaten is primarily a result of perceived shortcomings of the EU’s democratic quality, actors’ self-interest was also driving force.
