Abstract

After the Brexit vote in June 2016, many feared that the so-called Brexit would trigger a trend that would spread to the rest of the European Union (EU), with more countries following the United Kingdom (UK) straight out of the EU. For almost three years now after the UK’s Brexit vote, the most pessimistic prognoses have turned out to be wrong, at least for now. This analysis describes how public attitudes towards the EU have changed after the Brexit vote within the remaining EU-27 and connects the trends to the next EP elections in May 2019.
