European views of the EU and Brexit

The Pew Research Center released findings from its June report about attitudes on the European Union and the United Kingdom’s planned withdrawal from the EU one year after the Brexit referendum. The report found that public sentiment in 10 European nations toward the EU has rebounded, but many surveyed supported a stronger role for their nations’ governments in trade decisions and the holding of national referendums on EU membership. Center experts briefed stakeholders in Berlin, Brussels, London, Paris, Warsaw, and Washington, including EU Ambassador to the U.S. David O’Sullivan; the director general and members of the European Parliament; the U.S. State Department’s Europe and Eurasia bureau; and the U.S. Mission to the EU.
