My First European Election

A Representative Survey about Political Attitudes on Europe among First-Time-Voters

What do first-time voters in the European elections in June 2024 think about Europe? A representative survey shows that they think similarly to the population as a whole. Support for Germany's EU membership is similarly widespread among younger voters as in the overall population. However, younger people associate slightly less "peace" with the European Union and climate protection tends to be slightly more important to them than to all voters when it comes to the EU's political activities.

One who is in debt is not free

A plea for Germany’s debt brake

The discussion on Germany’s debt brake is in full swing. Critics of the debt break accuse it of being inflexible and an obstacle to investments for the sake of future generations.

AI methods for specific challenges in education

Enabling effective support and challenge

The education system must succeed in strengthening the basic skills of a heterogeneous student body. Adaptive learning systems offer individual support through customized tasks and can support teachers in this challenge. However, they have hardly been used in Germany to date. Successful use requires close integration with classroom teaching and teacher training. In addition, the successful development of adaptive educational media requires a coordinated effort from politics, science and industry.

The digital divide in society

Results from a representative survey on artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) has not yet become part of everyday life for many. Elderly and respondents with a lower level of education are particularly unfamiliar with AI applications. The differences are presumably due to the fact that younger people and respondents with a high level of formal education can make use AI in their professional context. Technology, digitalization and AI are not perceived as a promise, but also not as a threat. Abstract With the spread of applications based on artificial intelligence (AI), the digitalization of society has reached a new level. A representative survey conducted by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung examines how AI is perceived and evaluated by the general population.
