The European Parliament published in October 2018 its annual Eurobarometer survey.
The Parlemeter 2018 presents the results of the survey as an opportunity to take up the challenge: From (silent) support to actual vote. The 2018 Parlemeter also shows an overall increased awareness about the European Parliament Election.
More than ever, European citizens see their country’s membership to the EU as a good thing. The percentage of people that support EU membership has not reached such a high level since the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. The results of the Parlemeter are generally very positive about the EU and the benefits of EU membership. However, the results also indicate that half of respondents find that developments in the EU are heading in the wrong direction.
The Parlemeter is an annual Eurobarometer survey commissioned by the European Parliament in all EU Member States since 2007. It focuses on Europeans’ views of the European Parliament. The surveys measure Parliament’s public image and role, and how much citizens know about it. The Parlemeter also monitors public opinions on EU membership and its benefits, citizens’ feeling of identity, European vs national citizenship, political priorities and values.
