News

This episode of the podcast, moderated by Luciana Fazio (Post-Doctoral Researcher at University of Siena – UNISI) and featuring Pierangelo Isernia (Full Professor at University of Siena – UNISI), Francesco Olmastroni (Associate Professor at University of Siena – UNISI) and Carlotta Mingardi (former Post-Doctoral Researcher at University of Siena – UNISI), explores the public opinion and political party attitudes towards the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy.

The discussion examines why public opinion and domestic politics should be considered in the EU’s foreign and security policymaking, the current state of public opinion on these issues, and how the Ukraine war has impacted public attitudes. The researchers present findings from focus groups, surveys, and experiments across six European countries – France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, and Spain.

The discussion also explores the opportunities and risks the evolving landscape presents for the future development of a coherent and effective EU Foreign and Security Policy and provides insights into the complex interplay between public opinion, political parties, and European integration in this policy domain.
