This study focuses on how people understand China's foreign policy with regard to disputed islands in the South China Sea. Researchers and policy makers often disagree over how to characterize China's recent construction of military bases on small islands in the South China Sea. The public's views on this issue could have an important impact on the responses of the U.S. government to Chinese activities. 

We are interested in your views on how to describe the nature of China's activities and what the United States should do in response.  To this end we will administer a survey that will ask you to answer six (6) multiple choice questions about your views of China and its actions in the South China Sea. We expect the survey to take about 10 minutes. You must be located in the United State at the tie of taking the survey.
