A national analysis has been carried out as a follow-up to the exploratory study ‘Major changes in European public opinion with regard to the EU’, which showed how public opinion had changed in the 28 Member States since 1973.
The new national analysis is made up of three Powerpoint presentations that show how public opinion in each of the Member States has changed since 2007.
A number of indicators were used to reflect the widely varying national situations behind the European results:
The European Parliament regularly commissions surveys on public opinion in the Member States.
This is a means of keeping Parliament in touch with people's perceptions and expectations of its work and that of the European Union generally. The surveys are also extremely useful at the preparation, decision-making and evaluation stages of parliamentary business.
Readers will find them a source of information not only about attitudes in the EU to climate change or the current economic situation but also about how people see - and what they expect from - European elections, the European Parliament and European integration in general.
