Public Opinion on European Security and Defense: A Survey of European Trends and Public Attitudes Toward CFSP and ESDP

Franz Kernic, Jean Callaghan, Philippe Manigart

Public Opinion on European Security and Defense: A Survey of European Trends and Public Attitudes Toward CFSP and ESDP analyzes the relationship between public opinion and Europe‚Äôs new security policy. It aims to explore current perceptions of European integration, security, and defense in EU member states. Its main focus is on a comparison of prevailing attitudes toward the idea of closer European cooperation in security policy with an emphasis on CFSP, ESDP, and the EU Rapid Reaction Force. It also sheds light on current perceptions of threat among the populations of European states. The analysis is based on a comparison of available empirical data from public opinion polls and country studies, including the results of the Eurobarometer Survey 54.1.
