Democracy table: Poland – Listen to Europe (EMI)
03/12/2021, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
How committed are Polish citizens to democracy?
Is there a strong strain of authoritarianism embedded in Polish view of the world?
What are Polish attitudes towards the EU’s Economic Recovery Plan, economic inequality, climate change, women’s rights, immigration, human rights?
To answer these question, the European Movement International will hold a Democracy Table discussion with Polish stakeholders to present the public opinion poll results from the Listen to Europe: Reaching Beyond our Base Audience (LTE) project.
Listen to Europe is a long-term initiative aimed at helping civil society to set up targeted and informed campaigning based on data and segmentation of audiences. It includes public opinion surveys and social media listening to investigate drivers of citizens’ behaviour as well as the main topics and narratives present on social media in each of the eight project countries. It has examined the attitudes of European citizens towards the EU and democracy, along with their opinions about specific issues like the environment, immigration, gender equality and human rights.
