Title: IS THERE A DEMAND FOR REFERENDUMS ON EUROPE?
 
Author: Richard Rose and Gabriela Borz
 
Description: While the desirability of referendums is contested, national referendums on EU issues are a recurring fact. Moreover, the 2009 European Election Study, shows a big majority throughout Europe of those in favour of referendums on EU treaties .This is little related to satisfaction or dissatisfaction with first-order national politics and/or EU politics; civic competence; or national context. Because pro-referendum views are pervasive, a majority favouring the EU integration as well as opponents endorse EU referendums. The conclusion compares the risks of the status quo, with national governments selectively calling referendums, and introducing a pan-European referendum.
