eupinions trends/ Democracy in the EU
How satisfied are you with the way democracy works in the European Union?
This year’s European Forum in Alpbach calls for Europe
to face its future eyes wide open.
eupinions seconds this effort with relevant data.
Europe is facing various challenges, including the ecological turnaround and the stabilization of its economy and democracy. The European Forum Alpbach is a space and place for reflection and action. It brings together young people from Europe and from all over the world with the most innovative minds from politics, business, civil society, culture, and science to drive ideas for a strong and democratic Europe. This year’s theme “Bold Europe” calls for Europe to face the challenges of our time with boldness. Debates will focus on four thematic tracks:
• Rallying for Climate Action
• Fighting for Europe’s Economic Sovereignty
• Securing Europe in a Multipolar World
• Reinforcing Democracy in Europe
eupinions is a platform for EU-ropean public opinion. We second these thematic tracks with relevant survey data collected in June 2023.
Think about the European Union in general. Would you say that things are currently moving in the right direction?
Imagine there is a referendum and you could decide whether your country stays as a member of the European Union. How would you vote?
I would vote for my country to stay in the European Union.
eupinions is an independent platform for European public opinion. We collect and analyze data on European public opinion and comment on what Europeans think about current political issues and megatrends.
Our data is representative with regard to age, gender, education and country/region.
eupinions is a Bertelsmann Stiftung project. The data is collected by Latana.

eupinions is cooperating with a wide range of Europeans partners. This data has been presented in collaboration with European Forum Alpbach.
Most samples analysed in this report were drawn by Latana in March (with a size of n=13,208), June (n=13,220), September (n=13,204) and December 2022 (n=13,300) as well as in March (n=13,270) and June 2023 (n=13,322) across all 27 EU member states. Our samples take into account current population distributions with regard to age (16-70 years), gender and region/country. In order to obtain census representative results, the data were weighted using the most recent Eurostat statistics.
Any references to differences between countries in the report pertain only to the seven countries with sufficiently large sample sizes: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland and Spain. Calculated for a sample of this size and considering the design-effect, the margin of error would be 1% (March and September 2022, June 2023) and 0,9% (June and December 2022, March 2023) at a confidence level of 95%.
