Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine has had a profound impact on EU policies and politics. The European Union and its Member States have steadfastly supported Ukraine in its defensive efforts while simultaneously aiming to curb Russia’s aggression. 

This support has been manifested through unprecedented financial and economic sanctions imposed on Russia and its principal actors, as well as the provision of weapons and financial assistance to Ukraine. 

EU Member States have also opened their doors to Ukrainian refugees, and Ukraine, once a distant neighbour, is now actively pursuing accession to become a full EU member.

How has European voters’ attitude, and more specifically Italian voters’, evolved in the last few months? What impact will the war in Ukraine have on June 2024 European Parliament elections?

Catherine De Vries and Isabell Hoffmann will discuss the latest findings of the eupinions surveys supported by IEP@BU.


A conversation with

Catherine De Vries - Dean for International Affairs and Professor of Political Science at Bocconi University. Member of the Managing Council, IEP@BU.

Isabell Hoffmann - Senior Expert at the Bertelsmann Stiftung and Head of eupinions.

Stefano Feltri - Communication advisor, IEP@BU.
