Возрастная и территориальная дифференциация экономических интеграционных настроений населения в странах постсоветского пространства: что говорят данные новой волны Интеграционного барометра?
This article examines the perception of economic integration ideas by the population of the former Soviet Union countries. The authors highlight the differences in integration orientations among the young people and the older population in post-Soviet states. Territorial differentiation of the population’s integration sentiments is revealed in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine. The study is based on the data from the fourth wave of the “EDB Integration Barometer” survey. The main conclusion of the article is that the public opinion in post-Soviet states varies a lot: there is the age differentiation of the population’s integration orientations. In addition, there is a great diversity in integration preferences within different regions in Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine. The authors conclude that there is no homogeneous perception of integration processes in the post-Soviet states, and that special attention needs to be paid to the differences in the perception of Eurasian economic integration.
