The overall purpose of the study (lead jointly by TÁRKI and Applica sprl (Belgium) is to collect and report policy-relevant evidence on preferences of the citizens for social protection. Moreover, the aim is that the evidence collected and presented by the study could be used to support the EU Member States in modernising their social protection systems. As well as informing them about perceptions in other countries, it should in addition help them to design policy answers which respond to the demand for social protection and redistribution. The study will analyse the extent to which the idea of transnational and European solidarity is supported by people across the EU. The project is funded by DG EMPLOYMENT.
