“Predictors of Public PoliticalEuroscepticism in the EU” (ongoing)
The study deals with predictors of the EU citizens' reluctance to communitarize a policy, i.e. to transferpowers to the EU from national level (political Euroscepticism). The unwillingness appears to determinethe extent of potential integration deepening of the EU as a response to the current economic crisis. It isworth turning to this form of Euroscepticism, as so far scholars has explored the opinion about thecommunitarization of policies less often than attitude towards the EU or the membership of a country tothe EU (instrumental Euroscepticism). Moreover, the research is concerned with public rather than partylevel of Euroscepticism, analysed in the majority of studies on the issue. Besides, the sample consistsof citizens of all the EU member states. A set of predictors and a latent factor of public politicalEuroscepticism on the example of common immigration policy are ascertained relying on theories ofpolitical trust in institutions, securitization and risk with the use of Eurobarometer, Eurostat and theEuropean Commission data in 2003-2011. At first stage main predictors of political Euroscepticism aredefined with the use of a correlation matrix. Then a regression analysis is carried out in order to assessthe force of the relationship. Preliminary exploratory and two-level confirmatory factor analyses let usavoid multicollinearity and make the results of the regression analysis more valid.
