The EUI-YouGov ‘Solidarity in Europe’ project started in 2018 and aims to conceptualise and analyse the evolution of European, transnational solidarity. Since 2018, the project is supported by a yearly survey, conceptualized by the EUI and administered by YouGov, which serves as input for datasets, media contributions, articles and policy briefs.
During the 2022 Data Conference empirical research, both exploratory and theory-testing, based on the EUI-YouGov Solidarity dataset will be presented and discussed. The overall aim is to disseminate and get traction on this extremely rich, publicly available data, in order to foster research which will result in academic outputs. The broad rationale for participating to this conference is to use this dataset. Draft papers are welcome, but do not represent a condition to participate; presentations based on data-driven analyses are accepted as well. The latest version of the dataset contains the trendfile (2018-2019-2020-2021) as well as the four yearly waves. The questions cover a wide variety of topics: the concept of solidarity among EU states and beyond; response to different crises through various instruments, including the recent Covid-19 outbreak; welfare and unemployment; taxes and basic income; satisfaction and trust towards governments, the EU and international actors; strength of national and European identities; value of democracy; importance and salience of various issues and threats; intention in a EU-membership referendum and other EU-related indicators including differentiated integration; world politics; left-right self-placement; gender, religion and age group; vote record in past national elections.
The conference is co-organised by the Global Governance Programme and the European Governance and Politics Programme.
Registration in presence is reserved to speakers only.
