After Brexit: Euroscepticism and EU-referendums - what drives public attitudes towards referendums and the EU?

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Ever since the UK’s EU referendum was announced, genuine concerns existed about a possible ‘Brexit’-contagion-effect in which citizens of other EU member states would start to call more vocally for their own referendums. Using data from a survey conducted in six EU member states in January 2016, Jan, Dan and Christine will present insights from their evaluation of the potential for contagion effects. Their initial analysis is based on simple binary logistic regressions identifying what drives citizens to want their own referendum and also how they might vote if they were granted such a referendum. A discussion of more complex possibilities using the same and other survey data will follow.
