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.

This work includes numerous major reports on topics such as attitudes toward American foreign policy, globalization, terrorism, and democracy.
