In the context of the French Presidency of the Council of the EU, join our online webinar on European public attitudes towards Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, France’s leadership, and EU security.

What can we expect from President Macron’s summit on security and defence on 10-11 March? Since Russia invaded Ukraine, the EU has taken giant leaps forward as a geopolitical actor – but the stakes could not be higher for France, given it not only holds the EU Council Presidency but is just weeks away from key presidential elections. 

What can France learn from the European public mood in the weeks before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine? How do voters see the threat from Russia in terms of security and defence, European sovereignty, and international cooperation at large?

Our panel will discuss insights from new public opinion polling of 15,000 citizens across 12 EU member states, captured in the upcoming report by Susi Dennison and Tara Varma, A certain idea of Europe: How the next French president can lead.
