Public Opinion on the European Union. “The Standard Eurobarometer survey of Winter 2021-2022 was conducted in 39 countries or territories: the 27 Member States of the European Union (EU), the five candidate countries (Albania, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey), the Turkish Cypriot Community in the part of the country not controlled by the Government of the Republic of Cyprus, and in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Kosovo, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The full report consists of multiple volumes. The first volume presents the results of general questions about the state of public opinion in the European Union. Four other volumes present Europeans’ opinions about the following topics: European citizenship; the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic; the European Union’s priorities and media uses in the European Union.”

Study on airport noise reduction: Final report. “The European Commission, through this study, is assessing how European legislation on the management of aircraft noise around airports is implemented. The study aims to assess how both Directive 2002/49/EC (END) and Regulation 598/2014 (BAR) have been implemented by Competent Authorities at airports within the European Union, how these may have helped achieve noise reduction objectives, and whether there is a need to revise the existing legislation to improve their effectiveness.”

What if care work were recognised as a driver of sustainable growth? European Parliament Think Tank briefing. “Care work provided in homes and institutions is a public good that is under-valued by society. Care workers are more likely to have low earnings and precarious working conditions. About 9 in 10 care workers are women. Most unpaid care work within households is carried out by women. The ‘unpaid care penalty’ for women in the EU, which is equivalent to the earnings they lost because of this unbalanced distribution of care responsibilities, is estimated to reach €242 billion per year. EU action in the care sector has the potential for high returns for society. Fostering the ‘equal earner – equal carer model’ could generate benefits of between €24 billion and €48 billion a year. EU action to promote affordable, high-quality care could produce an additional €90 billion to €160 billion in benefits each year.”
