Lowy Institute polling puts foreign policy in context. Politicians cannot ignore public opinion no matter what country they come from and Lowy Institute polls provide insights into the constraints and opportunities public opinion creates for policy-makers.  

The Lowy Institute has conducted high-quality polling of the Australian public annually since 2005, allowing opinion to be compared over time. The polls also include a host of new questions each year on the critical issues of the day. 

Lowy polls overseas provide rich insights into how other countries, like China, Indonesia, India, Fiji and New Zealand view Australia and the world.
