Citizens and the European Polity

This chapter focuses on citizens’ attitudes towards the transfer of policy prerogatives from the national government to European institutions on specific domains. We approach this issue from two different perspectives. First, using a cross-sectional analysis of Eurobarometer and Candidate Eurobarometer data on all EU27 member states, we test hypotheses about what explains why citizens prefer the centralization of policy-making in supra-national authorities in some areas but not in others, while also addressing explanations as to why citizens in some countries are more supportive of policy integration in general than in others. Second, using a pooled panel time-series dataset on aggregate support for policy integration in the EU12 countries, we analyze trends from the late 1980s until today in ten selected policy areas, in order to determine what has affected changes through time in levels of support for policy integration
