Summary
This study is part of a larger Worldviews 2002 survey of United States and European foreign policy attitudes undertaken by The Chicago Council on Foreign Relations (CCFR) and the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) (see WORLDVIEWS 2002: AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN PUBLIC OPINION ON FOREIGN POLICY [ICPSR 3821]). The survey included six countries: France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and covered five topics: Europeans' focus on their respective countries' domestic issues, Europe's role on the world stage, European threat perception and the use of force, European views on American foreign policy, and Europe in a globalized world. Regarding focus on domestic issues, respondents were asked to give their opinions on the most important issue facing their country today and on various government programs. On the topic of Europe's role on the world stage, respondents were asked to rate their feelings on various countries as well as the European Union (EU), the influence of various countries, whether the EU or the United States was more important to their own country's vital interests, whether their own country should take an active part in world affairs, their desire for the EU to become a superpower, and what type of role their country should take in the global world. Concerning European threat perceptions and the use of force, respondents were asked about possible threats to their countries' vital interests, how willing they would be to support the use of force in various circumstances, how best to combat terrorism, and their willingness to support an attack on Iraq. On the subject of European views of American foreign policy, respondents were asked to rate the Bush administration's handling of foreign policy, evaluate the impact of the September 11th attacks on American foreign policy, rate their attitudes regarding United States spending on defense and economic assistance, and rate their desire for the United States to exert strong leadership in world affairs. On the subject of Europe in a globalized world, respondents rated their support for international institutions, the relevance of NATO, whether globalization was good or bad for their country, and whether they felt the United States practiced fair trade with Europe. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, liberal-conservative continuum, education, party preference, geographic region, and employment status
