Zagreb: 21 January 2010
Following the European Commission’s evaluations of progress of the Western Balkans towards European integration, the new Gallup Balkan Monitor on public opinion in the region offers insights into citizens’ views of the EU. In order to present and widely acknowledge the results of the Gallup Balkan Monitor, the European Fund for the Balkans in cooperation with Gallup Europe initiated a series of Gallup Balkan Monitor presentations and public discussions in the capitals of Western Balkan countries on the future of the Balkans, its European aspirations and the potential of “attitude change” and Europeanisation of the societies in the region.
The Zagreb event will focus on Croatia respondent’s attitudes and perceptions. The Gallup Balkan Monitor investigates public opinion on a broader range of issues, from the satisfaction with life standard and living conditions of citizens, attitudes towards the declaration of independence of Kosovo, to the desire to emigrate, expectations from the government and attitudes towards EU integration.
The results of country specific results for Croatia will be presented by Mr. Robert Manchin, Director of Gallup Europe. The discussion will be opened with short introduction by Ms. Hedvig Morvai-Horvat, Executive Director of the European Fund for the Balkans, Ms. Nevena Crljenko, Executive Director of the Academy for Political Development and Mr. Paul Vandoren, Head of Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Croatia.
