Attitudes Towards EU Integration and Euro Adoption in the Czech Republic

Cábelková, Inna, Mitsche, Nicole and Strielkowski, Wadim (2015) Attitudes Towards EU Integration and Euro Adoption in the Czech Republic. Economics and Sociology, 8 (2). pp. 93-101. ISSN 2071-789X

Item Type: Article


ABSTRACT. Our paper focuses on eliciting people’s
attitudes towards EU integration and the adoption of Euro
currency in the Czech Republic. Although EU Accession
was widely supported and accepted by the Czech citizens
prior to 2004, more than 10 years into the EU membership
the attitudes to integration have changed considerably.
The recent world’s economic and financial crisis, the crisis of the Eurozone and the issues with the Greek
membership in the Eurozone (the possibility of the
“Grexit”) have undermined the Euro optimism in many
EU Member States that joined the EU during the so-called
Eastern Enlargement in 2004. We use the example of the
Czech Republic and the representative survey data
collected by the Czech Institute of Sociology in 2012-2014 to estimate and describe the attitudes towards the EU integration and Euro adoption. Our results might shed
some light on the reasons of Euro pessimism and
scepticism and find links with the current economic and
political situation.
