Spectrum of opinion
Research suggesting the existence of six European "Tribes" points towards the benefits a more varied debate could bring across the EU. The refugee crisis, the rise of populist parties across Europe and the UK's vote for Brexit have all sparked intense debate about the future of the EU in recent years. Our analysis of a poll of more than 10,000 people across 10 European countries, carried out in December 2016 and January 2017 for Chatham House, suggests far greater diversity - and the existence of six distinct political "Tribes". From Warsaw to Madrid and Brussels to Budapest, the tribes offer clues as to how they may shape and influence the continent's politics in the years to come. Secondly, the six tribes do not directly correspond to party politics in many countries, or the European Parliament. Its members' views may shift and it is possible that some could join other tribes, such as the EU Rejecters or Contented Europeans.
