Please join us for a conversation with Bruce Stokes, director of Global Economic Attitudes at the Pew Research Center, who will present the findings of the new Pew Research Survey “Post Brexit: European Views on the EU, Having Their Own Vote on EU Membership and Taking Power Back from Brussels”. The survey will be published on June 20th, and analyzes the views of 10 European countries, including France, on Brexit: Is Brexit perceived as a good or bad thing for the EU? How is the European project perceived in the minds of Europeans? Do they approve or disapprove of the EU handling of economic issues and the refugee issue? Is it time for an “ever closer union” or should Member States start thinking about taking power back from Brussels? Do they think that Germany has too much or too little influence in the EU? The discussion will provide for an in-depth look at these findings, who holds these opinions—men, women, young, old—their political leanings, and analyze the implications of these results for the Macron government, the German election, the Brexit negotiation and the future of Europe.
