Abstract

How does the economic context within a country affect support for the European Union? John Garry and James Tilley present results of a study on the way in which the views of right-wing and left-wing citizens are shaped by the economic context within EU states. The findings show that those with right-wing opinions tend to have lower support for European integration if they already live in a broadly right-wing country; however right-wing citizens in left-wing countries are more supportive of the EU. This offers one explanation for why cooperation between political parties across Europe has proven difficult: even when parties share the same ideological principles, they may have varied views on future integration depending on the economic conditions within their own country.
