Come and join the Fabians as we launch our new policy report in association with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung entitled, ‘Next Generation Europe’. The event will feature contributions from Shadow Europe Minister Emma Reynolds MP as well as the report’s authors.
The EU was founded on a ‘never again’ spirit following the second world war, yet the arguments the first generation of European leaders made for closer integration resonate less and less as time goes by.
New polling conducted by YouGov for the Fabian Society and Friedrich Ebert Stiftung shows that 18-to-34-year-olds are instinctively and culturally more pro-European than other groups having grown up with the benefits of cross-continental co-operation. Yet there is also a fear that this will not translate politically and the next generation will not take a stand for the EU in an increasingly anti-EU climate.
