Attitudes of Europeans towards tobacco and electronic cigarettes – “The European Commission has published on the eve of World No Tobacco Day a Eurobarometer survey presenting European citizens’ attitudes to a range of tobacco-related issues. The general aim of the survey is to assess the prevalence and pattern of tobacco and electronic cigarette use, exposure to smoke in public places, to explore the motivations for smoking, and to help identify measures to reduce the number of smokers in the EU. The recent results are compared to the previous surveys, showing stable use of e-cigarettes (2%) and no decrease in the overall smoking rate in the EU (26%) since 2014. Amongst people aged 15 to 24 the rate has increased from 25% in 2014 to 29% in 2017.”

Designing Europe’s future – “On 1 March 2017, the European Commission presented a White paper on the Future of Europe, setting out challenges and opportunities for Europe in the coming decade. This Special Eurobarometer survey focuses on EU citizens’ opinions about different topics linked to the White Paper.”

An assessment of the Commission’s proposal on privacy and electronic communications – “This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the LIBE Committee, appraises the European Commission’s proposal for an ePrivacy Regulation. The study assesses whether the proposal would ensure that the right to the protection of personal data, the right to respect for private life and communications, and related rights enjoy a high standard of protection. The study also highlights the proposal’s potential benefits and drawbacks more generally.”
