Study TitleLowy Institute Poll 2011: Australia and the World - Public Opinion and Foreign Policy
Series NameLowy Institute Poll
Primary InvestigatorFergus Hanson
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.01239
AbstractThe Lowy Institute Poll surveys are designed to capture and track any long-term changes in Australian public opinions on a broad range of foreign policy issues. This is the seventh in the series and repeats many of the questions asked in earlier polls (ADA Study Numbers 01084, 01114, 01126, 01134, 01158 and 01238), revealing trends in public opinion on topics including foreign policy, international security, climate change, and attitudes towards the United States and China. Topics covered include foreign policy goals, trust in international powers, economic power, foreign aid, attitudes towards other countries, asylum seekers, global warming, willingness to pay more for electricity, the threat of terrorism and involvement in Afghanistan. New questions in the 2011 survey cover the Labour government's management of climate change policy, developing nuclear power plants, intervention in Libya, war on the Korean peninsula and attitudes to Wikileaks. The Poll also included questions about attitudes to Indonesia, last asked in 2006. Background variables include age group, gender, country of birth and parents' country of birth, language spoken at home, income and highest level of education.
