Description:

The dataset is based on telephone surveys that have been conducted every third year between 2003 and 2018. The respondents are representatives of the EU member states to 11 different working groups and committees in the Council of the EU. The purpose of the project is to improve our understanding of international decision-making, negotiations and cooperation with a special focus on the Council of the EU. The survey includes questions that are repeated in all the six survey rounds as well as questions that have been asked one or several times. Some of the questions are survey experiments. The design of the survey makes possible comparisons across policy areas, member states and over time.
