Foreign Policy and Global Attitudes

As today’s world grows more interconnected, international understanding is more vital than ever.

The Pew Research Center seeks to explore both American and global public opinion through multiple projects of the center, including the Pew Research Center for People and the Press, which provides data about U.S. views of national security and other foreign policy issues, and the Pew Global Attitudes Project, which provides an international perspective through a series of worldwide public opinion surveys.

Surveys related to foreign policy and global issues have included: the first-ever, nationwide, random sample survey of Muslim Americans; attitudes of the U.S. electorate on Iraq and other foreign-policy issues, vis-à-vis the presidential campaign; and views of America’s image from around the world.

This information is designed to help members of the news media, academic researchers, foreign policy analysts and the public in understanding public views on key global matters both in the United States and around the world.

The Pew Research Center does not take positions on policy debates. It is a nonpartisan subsidiary of Pew and is based in Washington, D.C.
