World Public Opinion is an international collaborative project whose aim is to give voice to public opinion around the world on international issues. As the world becomes increasingly integrated, problems have become increasingly global, pointing to a greater need for understanding between nations and for elucidating global norms. With the growth of democracy in the world, public opinion has come to play a greater role in the foreign policy process. World Public Opinion seeks to reveal the values and views of publics in specific nations around the world as well as global patterns of world public opinion.
