BRUSSELS, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- Eighty-two percent of European citizens want the European Union to do more in the fight against terrorism, it was revealed Tuesday according to the latest Eurobarometer poll commissioned by the European Parliament.


The highest support for more significant EU involvement was seen in Cyprus, Portugal and Italy, all around 90 percent. In Austria, Croatia and Poland where support was relatively the lowest, the rate was as high as three quarters.


The survey also found the perceived threat of terrorist attacks varied from 7 percent in Slovenia to 64 percent in France.


Differences between the opinions of women and men on this issue were almost non-existent, and older generations demonstrated only slightly stronger support for increased EU involvement against terror compared to the younger generations.


However, the survey found that the fight against terrorism is an area with an explicit and very strong perception of a gap between the expectations of EU citizens and the actual level of the union's involvement -- 69 percent considered the current EU involvement to be insufficient.


Eurobarometer said measures perceived as the most urgent were blocking the financing of terrorist groups, studying the roots of terrorism and radicalization, and strengthened control of external EU borders.


The European Parliament argued that under the existing legal framework, there is still some scope for further developing EU counter-terrorism capacities.


Better use of existing tools and improved coordination across policy fields may be a better way forward than hasty adoption of new measures without proper reflection on their possible impact, it advised on the survey result.


EU member states' unwillingness to share intelligence seems to be the single most important obstacle to successful cooperation at EU level, lawmakers said.


They added that increased contribution to the Schengen Information System, the Europol Information System and other EU information-sharing tools is crucial.


The improved technical design of these databases could considerably facilitate border checks and law enforcement. In the short term, cross-matching capabilities of EU databases could be enhanced in order to achieve complete interoperability in the more distant future, the European Parliament said.

Women working for the BBC have complained they were paid less than men in equivalent jobs and have accused managers of misleading them about their pay to hide widespread gender discrimination at the public broadcaster.


The complaints by BBC Women [url=http://www.cheapnfltitansjerseys.com/taywan-taylor-jersey/]Taywan Taylor Womens Jersey[/url] , a group of 170 staff, were sent to parliament's media committee, which is investigating BBC pay after the corporation was forced to disclose last July that two- thirds of on-air high earners were men and that some were paid far more than female peers.


The revelations caused a spate of bad headlines for the BBC and angered many female staff [url=http://www.cheapnfltitansjerseys.com/adoree-jackson-jersey/]Adoree Jackson Womens Jersey[/url] , who demanded equal pay for equal work. The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) has lodged a collective grievance to the BBC on behalf of 121 women.


""While individual BBC managers have been supportive, there is still a bunker mentality in some quarters and women have experienced veiled threats made against them when they raised the subject of equal pay,"" BBC Women said in written evidence to parliament's media committee.


The lawmakers are due to hear oral evidence on Wednesday from Carrie Gracie [url=http://www.cheapnfltitansjerseys.com/harold-landry-jersey/]Harold Landry Womens Jersey[/url] , the BBC's former China editor, who quit this month in protest over being paid less than her male peers .


Senior BBC managers, including Director-General Tony Hall [url=http://www.cheapnfltitansjerseys.com/kevin-byard-jersey/]Kevin Byard Womens Jersey[/url] , are due to appear before the committee just after Gracie .


Funded by a licence fee levied on TV viewers and reaching 95 percent of British adults every week, the BBC is a pillar of the nation's life, but as such it is closely scrutinised and held to exacting standards by the public and by rival media.


The BBC said in response to the evidence submitted by BBC Women and the NUJ that it was committed to equal pay and did not accept the assertion that it had not been complying with equality laws.


In the wake of Gracie's resignation and the public debate it sparked [url=http://www.cheapnfltitansjerseys.com/derrick-henry-jersey/]Derrick Henry Womens Jersey[/url] , six of the BBC's best-known male presenters and journalists agreed to take pay cuts. That was widely welcomed, but campaigners for equal pay said it did not solve the underlying issues.


BBC Women said gender pay discrimination affected every part of the organisation, not just high earners.


The group provided 14 individual examples of women in a range of roles as TV and radio presenters and reporters [url=http://www.cheapnfltitansjerseys.com/jonnu-smith-jersey/]Jonnu Smith Womens Jersey[/url] , all of whom described frustrating battles with managers after discovering they were paid less than their male counterparts.


""I have co-presented with a male colleague for many years ... I estimate he's paid around double what I earn for doing the same job,"" said one of the unnamed women in a typical submission. ""I raised the equal pay issue many times over the years, but nothing was done.""
