This article advances research on mass Euroscepticism by investigating the role of distributive justice. Drawing on cross-national survey data in 23 countries, the study shows that how citizens evaluate the distribution of scarce resources in the society affects the social legitimacy of the EU and that this association varies across EU member states based on the level of corruption. Findings suggest that distributive justice interacts with procedural justice in shaping anti-EU sentiments.
The seminar will be held in-person and online via MS Teams.
