When awareness of global poverty goes hand in hand with EU membership

Published the 10 August 2018 in Surveys

Traditionally, it is among the supporters of the European Union that we see the biggest number of citizens who are aware of poverty in the world.
63% of supporters of the European Union say they are concerned about the plight of people in the South, against 25% of those who are against France’s membership of the European Union.
On issues of development, opinions about France’s membership of the European Union represent the opposition between the supporters of an open world and the defenders of a closed world.

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.
