Summary

What kind of Social Europe do European citizens want to maximise their well-being in the future? This issue paper by Eric Harrison, Elissa Sibley, Sotiria Theodoropoulou and Benedetta Guerzoni attempts to answer this question, by analysing the results of several social surveys. The information emerging from the surveys gives the opportunity to identify Europeans’ values, attitudes and preferences in relation to a number of policy areas pertaining to social policy and well-being at European and national level. Furthermore, the authors highlight the limitations of existing data and suggest areas for future research.
