Abstract
  • This thesis examines the relationship between political support and generational effects in the European Union. This paper argues that age has a negative effect on support for the European Union with older citizens being less supportive of the European Union than their younger counterparts. By using Eurobarometer data from twenty-seven member states, this paper analyzes the influence of age on citizens' support for the European Union on a macroeconomic scale. Age serves as the independent variable while trust, support and outlook are the dependent variables. Education, which could be an alternative independent variable, is controlled for in this study. The results reveal that age has no substantial effect on a citizen's trust, support or outlook towards the European Union.
