Public Opinion: The Future of Europe report

The Future of Europe report presents a snapshot of the way Europeans perceived the EU and its future direction in early 2014.

It begins by considering the EU’s present circumstances, its main assets and the main challenges it faces. Then it asks whether children in today’s EU can expect an easier or more difficult life than people from older generations, and whether the EU is likely to be more or less influential than other world powers at the end of this decade. Finally, the focus shifts towards planning for the Europe of 2020, looking at where the policy-making emphasis should lie, whether there should be more or less decision-making at EU level, and support for further European integration in three specific areas.
