This report presents the results of a Special Eurobarometer survey which was carried out between 15 and 29 March 2019. Interviews took place in the 28 Member States of the European Union. Similar surveys were conducted in 2009, 2014 and 2015. This report consists of four parts. In the first section, “Life in the European Union”, respondents discuss the main concerns at both national and European levels. This chapter also addresses Europeans’ views about social protection and access to healthcare. Citizens’ views on the way democracy works in both their country and the European Union are also... considered, as well as their opinions as to whether the political system takes account of the interests of people like them in their country, and the rise of anti-establishment parties. The second part, “The European Union in 2019”, addresses views on the EU’s present circumstances, including opinions about the EU’s main assets, challenges and most positive results. Citizens’ opinions about the EU’s place in the world are examined through their perceptions of the EU as a place of stability in a troubled world, followed by their attitudes to globalisation. Lastly, this chapter looks at Europeans’ trust in the media and in political institutions, including the European Union. In the third part, “The European Union and its citizens”, respondents discuss what the EU means to them personally, as well as their subjective and objective knowledge of the European Union. The focus then shifts to European citizenship, asking whether Europeans understand what is going on in today’s world, whether they feel they are citizens of the EU and whether they have things in common with people at both national and European levels. The report ends with a chapter on “Europe today and tomorrow”, where we discuss whether respondents support more decision-making at EU level, the areas in which technology will have the biggest impact in Europe, and the policies that would be most helpful to Europe’s future. Finally, other topics include Europeans’ confidence in the future, optimism about the future of the European Union, and the prospects for young people.
