Abstract

Since 2010, Ireland, Portugal and Greece have all received financial rescue packages, or bailouts. But who supports and opposes these bailouts, and why? Using survey data from the UK, Stephanie Rickard finds that public support for bailouts tends to depend on the beneficiary country; there is greater support for bailouts for countries such as Ireland, which have closer economic links to the UK.
