Abstract
Being a part of academic discussion for more than 10 years, Euroscepticism (especially in connection with party politics) have not been so far adequate defined. Widely accepted definition by Taggart and Szczerbiak who has divided Euroscepticism between its “hard” and “soft” version suffers from several weaknesses as the whole conceptualization lacks counterpart of Euroscepticism (pro European attitude) as well as definition of of the EU statehood (EU polity). Thus, almost every critique against current form of European integration is labelled as a Euroscepticism. This approach, widely present both in the political and scholar discourses, is built upon implicitly present conceptualization of the European Union as a static and finality reached actor. The paper challenges this conceptualization of Euroscepticism and through detailed analysis of current “state of art” offers a different perspective where conceptualization of Euroscepticism is a consequence of previously stated standards concerning pro-European stance and EU polity.
