Disappointment with EU institutions came out of the periphery and went mainstream during the COVID-19 pandemic. One way EU leaders can reboot public confidence in the project is through its international role – standing up for democracy and becoming self-reliant. Public instincts on Western alliances are also shifting – even with Biden’s America. That is the main finding of ECFR’s new public opinion polling of 17,000 citizens across 12 EU countries.
Join a panel of political pundits to help disentangle the public mood ahead of Biden’s first trip to Europe in June for the G7 and EU-US summit.
The event will launch an exciting new polling-backed report on what Europeans want from the EU’s role in the world by Susi Dennison, Director of ECFR’s European Power Programme, and Jana Puglierin, Head of ECFR’s Berlin office.
