Our Oxford University research team is working to find out what Europeans really think about Europe – and what they want the EU to do by 2030. This website shows interviews with both 'ordinary' Europeans and leading experts, specially commissioned opinion polling and a selection of illuminating texts. Please take a look – and contribute.
