Czech support of European integration steeply declined, survey finds
Czech support of European integration is on the decline, according to a fresh survey by the American Pew Research Center. Among all eight EU member states polled, the Czech Republic sees the membership most critically. The survey also found that Czechs were especially critical of their prime minister’s approach to the debt crisis in the Eurozone. The Pew Research Center concludes that the financial crisis within the union has also spurred a deep crisis of member countries’ trust in the EU. Among the countries polled were Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Greece and the non-Eurozone members: the Czech Republic along with Poland and Great Britain.
