Abstract

EU membership provides ample opportunities for politicians at the national level to shift blame for unpopular decisions to the EU's institutions, while EU-level actors also have an incentive to blame national politicians when things go wrong. Drawing on a new study, Tim Heinkelmann-Wild explains how these blame-avoidance processes function in practice.
