The European Elections Debate

Between the 22nd and the 25th of May over 350 million EU citizens will be called to elect 751 members of the European parliament. But the economic crisis has severely damaged the image of the EU, and come May, many citizens are expected to abstain or endorse anti-EU parties. In this special edition of Talking Europe candidates discuss the issues that will be at the centre of the campaign.
