This REScEU Mass Survey Report analyses the relevant results of a public opinion survey conducted in a sample of ten EU member states – Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden – in July 2019, just after the European Parliament (EP) elections held in May 2019.
At the aggregate level, MPs are generally in favour of an EU fund compensating member states and local communities for the costs of intra-EU migration. There are, however, notable differences at the country level.
Six MPs out of ten in our pooled sample are in favour of the introduction of Eurobonds, a figure slightly higher than what is observed among voters (56%). However, in Germany, Poland, and Sweden, a clear majority of MPs (70% on average) does not support the introduction of Eurobonds.
