Legitimacy Deficit? Public Perspectives on the Euro Crisis

31 May 2012 - 9:00am to 10:15am

Chatham House, London


Bruce Stokes, Director, Pew Global Economic Attitudes



As Europe’s economic turmoil continues, is public support for the European project itself the next victim of the euro crisis? In light of Pew’s latest Global Attitudes study, Bruce Stokes will present new research that analyses citizens’ opinions on how institutions have handled the crisis in eight European countries. Do Europeans still support economic integration, the EU, the ECB and the euro? What do Europeans say about austerity, bailouts and Brussels’ impending oversight of national budgets?

This event will examine European public opinion on these issues and the implications for national governments, EU institutions and the possible solutions to the crisis.
