The European Union is still feeling the reverberations of the 2015 migrant crisis, which sowed deep divisions among member states about the acceptance of refugees and migrants. Against this background, the Ukraine crisis has triggered the largest inflow of refugees in Europe since the second world war.
As part of the ERC Synergy Project SOLID we have mapped and explored public opinion about refugee displacement from Ukraine in five EU member states (France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Hungary). Our questionnaire was administered between March 11 and April 5, 2022, with a total sample size of 10,229 respondents. This blog compares these recent results with those from a previous survey, administered between June and August 2021.
