Our project addresses the upcoming 2024 European Parliament elections and the growing polarization within newer EU member states. These countries, including the V4 states, exhibit low electoral participation, Euroscepticism, and a general distrust in authorities and institutions. To understand this trend, we aim to explore citizens’ needs, concerns, and fears. This project is timely as Europe undergoes significant transitions, particularly the green transformation, to combat climate change, which will drastically reshape societies. The project aims to assess citizens’ attitudes and preferences regarding four key policy domains: decarbonization policies, migration, the COVID-19 pandemic, and debates over the rule of law. In the V4 countries, there have been democratic backsliding, a rise in populism, social fragmentation, and erosion of the rule of law over the past few years.
