The continent-wide rise of Euroscepticism

Torreblanca, Jose Ignacio and Leonard, Mark, (2013), “The continent-wide rise of Euroscepticism”, European Council on Foreign Relations, 16 May.

Euroscepticism has spread across the continent like a virus. It is striking that everyone in the EU has been losing faith in the European project: both creditors and debtors, eurozone countries, would- be members and “opt-outs”. So what is going on? In ECFR’s new policy memo – The continent – wide rise of euroscepticisim – ECFR experts analyse the situation in 13 EU member states. Based on a fresh analysis of eurobarometer data the study shows that trust in the EU has plummeted across the continent.
