America’s Role in the World Post 9-11:
A New Survey of Public Opinion
The public release of the 2012 Chicago Council Survey at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington D.C. will be webcast live here on September 10 as part of The National Conversation, a joint production of The Wilson Center and NPR. The 2012 Chicago Council Survey findings track public preferences for U.S. foreign policy ten years since the September 11th attacks, and include an assessment of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and views toward scheduled troop withdrawal from Afghanistan and U.S. intervention in Syria. The survey also includes special sections looking at opinion toward Asia, including a focus on Japan and Korea.
This is The Chicago Council’s thirteenth nationwide public opinion survey on American attitudes toward U.S. foreign policy. First conducted in 1974 and done every four years, the Chicago Council Survey is now conducted biennially.
