Euroscepticism is found among both radical left and radical right parties and voters across Europe. This pattern, often called the ‘horseshoe model’, has been observed in a number of EU referenda in recent years. Erika van Elsas studies the applicability of this horseshoe model to public opinion in Western Europe and investigates to what extent Eurosceptic attitudes actually provide common ground for the political left and right.
