The Eurozone crisis has pushed reform of the European Union (EU) to the forefront of political debate. How can a Union of 28 states with a population of over half a billion be reformed to weather future economic crises and  political challenges? Finding an answer to this question is extremely difficult not only because current reform proposals are so varied, but even more so because we lack  insights into the preferences for reform amongst national  elites and publics. Although EU support has interested scholars for over three decades now, we virtually know nothing about public support for EU reform.

Eupinions  examines public support for EU reform by developing a theoretical model and employing cutting-edge data collection techniques. Our findings will aid policy makers to craft EU reform proposals that can secure widespread public support.
