Current Attitudes of the Public on Entry to the EU

At the end of February and beginning of March, the efforts of our country aimed towards the integration in the European Union were supported by 59 % of citizens, with 25 % disagreeing and 16 % not having an opinion on the matter. Consequently, the support stays on a steady majority level on the long-term basis. Negative attitudes after last year’s rise, influenced by the border protests against "Temelín nuclear power plant" and discussions about the so-called transitory period for free movement of labour forces, went back to the level of the previous years.

The current survey results indicate that as of yet the ongoing heated discussions over the Beneš Decrees have not negatively influenced the public attitude towards the integration in the EU practically in any way.
