We will launch the results from this collaborative research project between The University of Edinburgh and German think tank d|part into the attitudes of other EU member states towards the UK’s EU referendum. This unique project is the only comprehensive, representative survey looking systematically at attitudes towards this referendum in other EU member states. It is part of the ESRC UK in a Changing Europe programme and coordinated under the auspices of AQMeN.

Join us on the 10th of March to hear the results from a survey of citizens across Ireland, Germany, France, Poland, Sweden and Spain with their views on the crucial questions around the referendum including:

• whether the UK should stay or leave the EU

• attitudes towards policy changes proposed by the UK

• perceptions of the renegotiation process

• general attitudes towards and knowledge about the EU

• desirability of a similar process in citizens’ own country 

The findings will be presented by the research team of Dr Jan Eichhorn (UoE), Dr Daniel Kenealy (UoE) and Christine Hübner of d|part followed by a discussion with Professor Anand Menon, Director of the ESRC UK in a Changing Europe project. This session will evaluate the relevance of these findings for the "Brexit" process and negotiations.
