An Overview of the 2019 European Parliament Election and its potential implications for the GCC

The next European Parliament election will take place from May 23-26, 2019 where citizens from all EU member states will vote in what has been described a critical election in terms of the impact on the future composition of the Parliament as well as the future direction of the European Union.  In a Europe that will continue to be preoccupied with itself as new political arrangements emerge, how are issues of importance to the Gulf region likely to feature on the post-election EU agenda and how can the GCC states maintain relations with the many different factions likely to emerge within the new Parliament?  The prospects for this critical election and its implications for Europe’s relations with the Gulf region are examined in this timely publication by Bussola researchers Christian Koch and Nadine Aly.
