The founders of the European project were dreamers. They dreamed of a united Europe: a continent of peace, solidarity and shared prosperity. A Europe without borders and divisions that celebrates the continent’s incredible diversity. A Europe evolving towards an ever-closer union, inspired by the notion that Europe will always be stronger together.
Do Europeans today share the founders’ dream?
Together, FEPS and Policy Solutions set out to reply to this question with a landmark survey covering the 14 most populous Member States. Our research defines the European dream by providing insights on the hopes and expectations EU citizens have for Europe.
