Many observers seem puzzled by the demise of social democracy in the
context of the EU. While some frame the developments in the context
of the electoral woes of the centre-left at Member State level (Pauly
2018), others see a paradox: while social democratic policies and parties are highly in favour of the European project, the European project
damages their electoral chances the most (Holmes and Lightfoot 2014:
228). This apparent paradox can be resolved quite easily, however, when
adopting a critical political economy perspective and investigating the
dissonance between social democratic commitments and the actual policies pursued at EU level.
