Europeanization has radically altered its member states’ governance practices, but these changes have been uneven and often go unacknowledged in national political discourse. ‘Simple’ polities like Britain and France have had to make even greater adjustments than ‘compound’ polities such as Germany and Italy. National leaders’ failure to communicate fully with regard to Europeanization, however, has ensured that popular ideas about national democracy have not kept pace with EU-driven changes in national institutions. This is especially problematic for simple polities, where the challenge to traditional democratic practices and ideas is greater than in compound polities.

Keywords:   Europeanization, simple polities, compound polities, communicative discourse, democracy
