Join us to hear 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.

We will discuss 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 Hubner of d|part followed by a discussion with Prof John Curtice (Strathclyde Uni/ScotCen Social Research) comparing the results to findings from the UK.
