Over recent years, there have been turbulent shifts in public attitudes toward the European Union in the UK and beyond. While few citizens on the European continent are eager to see their own country depart the EU, some have expressed a desire to exercise more influence over the EU’s legislative powers and decision-making processes.
In the run up to the European Parliamentary elections and amid the uncertainty of UK’s upcoming exit from the EU, how do Europeans – both inside and outside the UK – view the European Union, the European Parliament and the European Commission as individual entities? How do Europeans articulate their frustrations with the European project? And how do European’s really view how the EU is handling critical issues related to economic growth and stability, immigration and Brexit?
