French youth in favor of "generous" international aid

Published 7 August 2018 in Surveys

30% of French adults under 25 years old consider that the French government must contribute generously to international aid, as do 16% of French people over 50 years old.

French young adults are more than twice as likely to support France’s contribution to international aid as their elders over 50 years old.

French youth is more receptive to the need of the French government - in other words, the government of a developed country - to contribute generously to the development of poor countries.

In terms of development, this younger French generation seems to be the generation of generosity.

This data comes from our survey conducted by the YouGov Institute and piloted by the research team at University College London and Birmingham University as part of the project Aid Attitudes Tracker which measures the evolution of opinions and behaviors on issues of international solidarity in four countries.
