International understanding is increasingly important as the global marketplace grows, economies and financial systems become interconnected, and the rapid movement of ideas and trends through social media brings the world closer together.

Pew works across the globe to conduct public opinion surveys on a broad array of subjects ranging from people's assessments of their own lives to their views about the current state of the world and important issues of the day. This work includes numerous major reports on topics such as attitudes toward American foreign policy, globalization, terrorism, and democracy.
