Populist and Eurosceptic movements from across the political spectrum have enjoyed growing support in recent years. Heated debates on the current refugee crisis show: Emotions and prejudices often drown out the analysis of actual facts about the EU. Against this background the Institute for European Politics (IEP), in cooperation with Das Progressive Zentrum and funded by the Stiftung Mercator, has designed the project “TruLies: The Truth about Lies about Europe”. The aim of the project is to contribute to making discussions in Germany of European policy more rational and objective.
