The Crisis, the Public, and the Future of European Integration

The Crisis, the Public, and the Future of European Integration

(p.146) 6 The Crisis, the Public, and the Future of European Integration
After the Crisis

Jeffry Frieden

Oxford University Press

This chapter assesses attitudes towards economic and monetary integration, emphasizing the impact of the crisis on these attitudes. There remains a great deal of support for European integration and, within the Eurozone, for EMU However, socio-economic variables have powerful effects on these preferences. Throughout the union those with more education, and in more skilled and professional economic activities, are more favourable to integration. There are also important differences across countries, especially in the extent to which individuals trust the European Union and their own national governments. However, the crisis has severely eroded popular faith in both national governments and the European Union. Again, there is variation among groups and across countries. Less educated and less skilled citizens, along with the unemployed, are particularly disenchanted; and those in the Eurozone debtor nations are uniformly disappointed with the functioning of both their national political institutions and the institutions of the European Union.
