Austria, preferably in-between?


Would Austrians prefer to be position in the West, in the East, or somewhere in-between?

For a sixth year, GLOBSEC Trends 2021 report provides unique insight into public attitudes towards the functioning of democracy, proneness to belief in conspiracy theories and trust in institutions, mainstream media and authorities in ten Central and Eastern European countries: Austria, Bulgaria, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

This summary focuses specifically on Austria and has been developed in cooperation with an Austrian partner in the project Austrian Society for European Politics / Österreichische Gesellschaft für Europapolitik (ÖGfE).

Read the highlights in the fact-sheets below (both in English and German) and watch ÖGfE’s Secretary-General, Paul Schmidt, talk about the trends in public perceptions in Austria.
