One issue discussed is if Erasmus is helping to generate more European solidarity. A study carried out by the European Commission in 2010, shows that participating to Erasmus strengthens tolerance. Another issue is whether Erasmus enables the mixing of Europeans. For example, more than a quarter of Erasmus participants meet their life partner through it and participation in Erasmus encourages mobility between European countries. Most young people had a strong European identity before participating in the Erasmus program. In fact, for these young people, the Erasmus experience makes them even more European, but the research showed no evidence that taking part in the Erasmus programme would lead to revolutionary changes in students' political views.
