On Tuesday, we heard from Wellesley College’s Quinn Slobodian about the results of the recent European parliamentary elections, for which many European Union members states reported record voter turnouts. But these elections have not always enjoyed such enthusiasm. In Worldview’s first year, 1994, Joseph Weiler of New York University joined the show to discuss the effects of voter apathy in the European parliamentary elections. Weiler was a law professor and co-director of the European Law Research Center at Harvard Law School at the time of this interview. He is currently a law professor, as well as co-director of the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law and Justice, at NYU.
