Where do the British people stand before the EU election?

A week ahead of the European election, Policy Network will hold a breakfast seminar to discuss British attitudes to Europe and how the electorate will likely vote on 22 May.

Pew Research expert Bruce Stokes will present new data from the 2014 Pew Global Attitudes survey against the backdrop of UKIP’s surge in support. This will focus on the economy, the EU (and support for in/out positions), national political leadership, attitudes toward immigrants and minority groups and whether voters feel their voice is heard in the EU and in Britain.

Similar data available from six other EU countries will put the British situation in perspective and reveal broad trends that will impact on the EU project over the years to come.

YouGov president Peter Kellner will comment on these findings. Roger Liddle will open up the discussion on the consequences of public attitudes for the UK-EU debate.
