Support based on Values? Attitudes toward the EU in Eleven Postcommunist Societies

Abstract

The central attraction of the EU to nations in Central, Southeast, and Eastern Europe are the economic prospects associated with EU membership after these countries experienced a period of economic insecurity and social decline. However, although economic integration is a key aspect of linking new accession countries to Western Europe, the integration process among West European member-states also occurred on the basis of shared ideological values. Whereas the economic attraction of accession for postcommunist states may be clear, the accession of new countries raises the question of whether citizens in new EU member-states share the broad value consensus of West European publics.1
