This project explores how people form attitudes about immigration policies. While immigration is a critical policy issue in America and beyond, researchers often disagree about what factors truly drive individual attitudes towards open or closed immigration policies. A better understanding of these factors can potentially help policy makers more effectively design policies to benefit society. In this study you will be asked whether you support or oppose certain immigration-related foreign policies, and will be invited to elaborate on how you formed your opinions. The survey should take about 10 minutes or so.
This survey studies how people around the world perceive different kinds of international development activities. Development finance, sometimes called foreign aid, comes in the form of projects, money, goods or services that a donor government gives to less developed countries so they can pursue various development goals. Development finance is an important policy issue: whether or not citizens in donor and recipient countries support foreign aid, nearly half of the countries in the world are indeed aid donors. This study involves answering a series of survey questions and reading a short blurb about a recent development project. By participating you will contribute to scientific understanding about international development and public opinion. You will also learn about a recent international development project financed by your national government. This study should take about 10 minutes to complete.
In this survey, respondents will be asked questions regarding the U.S.' conduct of war in recent military episodes. Participation in this survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes. Questions are multiple choice and text entry.
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.
This research study is broadly focused on public opinion toward U.S. foreign policy. Specifically, the study aims to understand how the public feels toward the use of certain soldier types in fighting U.S. wars. The findings will help explain the use of private military contractors in war and their implications on U.S. elected officials’ ability to prolong military efforts abroad.
