Who will win -
and what then?
Election day is coming up in Britain. Who will master the politics of fragmentation better - Labour leader Ed Miliband or Conservative Leader and present PM David Cameron?
In British Politics Review 2-15, we offer different perspectives on the upcoming general election.
On 7 May, the political cards will once again be redistributed between the competing forces of British politics. For the political parties, there is both much to hope for, and much to be feared.
Our article contributors this time include Andrew Gamble, Kevin Theatston, Franscesca Gains, Claire Annesley, Jan Erik Mustad, Glen O'Hara, Malcolm Harvey and Řivind Bratberg.

Although not a major issue in the ongoing election campaign, all indications are that the question of Britain’s EU membership will be a core issue in the coming years. What kind of role is Britain going to play in the EU?
The Conservative Party’s manifesto sketches renegotiation with
Brussels followed by a referendum on the membership issue,
something neither Labour nor the Liberal Democrats are inclined to accept. But whether or not Britain’s relationship
with the union is put to this ultimate test, there are going to be
a number of difficult questions to handle.
Could a better balance be drawn between EU law and parliamentary sovereignty? And are there real options available for Britain within contested areas such as justice and home affairs, agricultural policy and foreign policy?
The summer edition of British Politics Review is due to arrive in July 2015. Please contact us if you would like to contribute!
