IntUne Mass Survey Wave 2, 2009 (ICPSR 34272)

Principal Investigator(s): Cotta, Maurizio, University of Siena (Italy); Isernia, Pierangelo, University of Siena (Italy); Bellucci, Paolo, University of Siena (Italy)


IntUne is an integrated project on the theme of European citizenship financed by the European Union, within the scope of the Sixth Framework Programme and is coordinated by the University of Siena. It involves 29 European Institutions and over 100 scholars across Eastern and Western Europe. The mass survey was conducted in 2009 in 16 European Union Member States; Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia Republic, Slovenia, Spain, and the United Kingdom, as well as 1 non-European Union Member State, Serbia. It aims at studying the changes in the scope, nature, and characteristics of citizenship that result from the process of the deepening and enlargement of the European Union. This survey focuses on how integration and disintegration processes, at both the national and European level, affect three major dimensions of citizenship: identity, representation, and scope of good governance. Respondents were polled on their interest in politics, their opinion of the general economic situation, and how satisfied they are with the way democracy works in their respective countries. Societal questions addressed whether or not respondents believe most people can be trusted, and how much influence one person has on politics. Opinions were gathered concerning the benefits of being a member of the European Union, the addition of Serbia to the European Union, and whether or not Serbia would benefit from European Union membership. Demographic variables include age, sex, education, current employment status, marital status, and religious affiliation.
