Delivering on Europe
Citizens' Views on Current and Future EU Action
Since the economic and financial crisis, European citizens have increasingly become aware that decisions taken by the European institutions can and would affect them immediately and touch their daily lives. Developments on both the international and European stage, e.g. the rise in power and influence of both China and Russia or the ongoing Brexit negotiations, lead citizens to clearly support rather joint European action instead of individual national responses.
In a series of questions asked throughout several survey waves since 2016, the European Parliament’s Eurobarometer also traces the rising awareness of citizens that the European Union is indeed delivering for them in the areas that matter most to them. In parallel to this rising awareness of ‘delivery’, survey results also show the unbroken call of Europeans for more EU action in many of these policy fields.
