Public expectations and EU commitment on the fight against terrorism

According to a new Eurobarometer survey of the European Parliament on ‘perceptions and expectations’, EU citizens demonstrate overwhelming and rather consensual support for increased EU intervention in the fight against terrorism. 82% of all EU citizens want expanded Union involvement in the future. This is the highest support for more European action of all researched policy areas. Differences between countries are smaller than in other policy areas. The highest support for more significant EU involvement is seen in Cyprus (93%), Portugal (91%) and Italy (88%), and the lowest in Austria (73%), Croatia and Poland (74%). The differences between countries are not related to the feeling of threat of terrorist attacks, which varies from 7% in Slovenia to 64% in France.
