eupinions is an independent platform for European public opinion. We collect, analyse and comment on what the European public thinks about current political issues and megatrends.
eupinions employs cutting-edge data collection techniques. Every quarter, we collect samples from each EU member state in 22 languages. Our data meets the highest scientific standards and is representative with regard to age, gender, education and country/region.
eupinions is a project of Bertelsmann Stiftung. The data is collected by Dalia Research.
Europe is going through a hectic period of challenge and change. Economic and fiscal crises, threats to internal security, tectonic geo-political shifts along with Brexit and the questioning of Western values within the European Union are all exerting pressure on mainstream politics. Once more, the future of democracy and the unity of Europe seem fraught with uncertainty.
This entire background forces Europeans to engage in a fundamental debate about their future: What are the great questions about the future that Europeans should tackle together? Or not? Within which framework should they act? Collectively or individually? Is efficiency more important than unity? Does the pragmatic search for solutions breach European principles?
‘eupinions’ is gathering the opinions of Europeans on these central questions about the future of Europe and bringing them to bear in the public debate. We would like to give Europeans a representative voice in this discussion.
