Survey: people reveal their priorities for the EU

The fight against terrorism should be the EU's number one priority followed by action on unemployment, the fight against tax fraud, migration, the protection of external borders and the environment, according to the vast majority of people surveyed in a special Eurobarometer carried out by the European Parliament. Those participating were asked if more or less common action is required on a range of different issues.

Respondents believe that more common EU action is required in the vast majority of policy areas they were asked about. The fight against terrorism (82%) and the fight against unemployment (77%) were singled out as the main priorities by people.
