Perception of EU action as adequate at present: percentage points difference between 2016 and 2018

Back in 2016, less than a quarter of EU citizens surveyed evaluated current EU involvement as sufficient (23 %). Today, this share of satisfied citizens has reached almost one third (32 %), which is an improvement of 9 percentage points. Similarly, the share of citizens who evaluate current EU involvement as insufficient has dropped from 69 % in 2016 to 57 % in 2018. Together with protection of external borders, the fight against terrorism is the policy area that shows the most significant improvement in citizens’ evaluation of EU performance.
This trend towards an improved evaluation of EU involvement in the fight against terrorism is shared by citizens of all EU Member States. The most significant improvement was registered in Portugal (an increase of 24 percentage points) and Belgium (21 percentage points). The increase is least significant in France and the UK (only 2 and 3 percentage points respectively).
