general, the public in all studied countries had a rather positive perception of the EU. A cultural norm, namely that the Japanese are believed to be more reserved in expressing their negative feelings, has to be noted. Yet, when comparing across time, a decrease in positivity of the EU’s image in the eyes of the Japanese and Korean publics is recorded. The Chinese case was opposite, recording a slight increase in positive attitudes towards the EU as well as an obvious drop in negative attitude. Combining this result with that about the public awareness of the EU in the
