How is support for European integration differentiated? This is the question Martin Moland set out to answer in his PhD-thesis ‘Differentiated Views on a Differentiated Union? Investigating popular support for a differentiated European Union’.  

A complex picture of popular support for the EU 

In his thesis, Moland shows that the attitudes of European citizens towards the EU may be more complex than many political scientists have previously thought. For example, Moland finds that citizens are prone to wish for more integrated EU policies within migration or defence policies, despite these being policy areas many have considered to belong to EU member states.

Two of the three articles in the thesis are published as peer reviewed journal articles, and can be found here: 

Together, these articles shine a light on popular perceptions of what the future EU should be.
