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.
Following the analysis of elites' opinion relative to the behaviour of Germany during the Euro crisis, we gauged MPs' feelings towards some European leaders who played, or are still playing, a relevant role in the current multidimensional crisis of the EU.
Being the largest member state and biggest economy of the EU, Germany has played an important role during the crisis. We asked MPs of 7 EU countries if Berlin acted more like a "self-interested hegemon", or a "solidaristic leader".
