Voters of center-right parties in Slovakia and the EU membership

Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) in cooperation with the Center for European Studies (CES), Brussels and Institute for Modern Slovakia (IPMS) conducted in 2010 a research project focused on voters of the center-right parties in Slovakia and their perception of the EU membership. On March 9, 2011 the study has been presented together with a bilingual publication. The presentation took place in cafe Scherz and has been followed by a rich discussion.

The study is based on a representative sociological survey which was carried out by FOCUS agency in May 2010. However, the analysis relies also on additional empirical sources related to this topic and consequently provides a complex view on the perception of the EU membership by all social groups. The study was written by IVO analyst Olga Gyarfasova in cooperation with Marian Velšic.
