The Mansfield Asian Opinion Poll Database is a reference for researchers and others to help monitor key public opinion trends in Northeast Asia. We’ve collected and translated top-of-the line opinion polls on key policy-related issues from major media organizations and other agencies in Japan, South Korea, and China. These polls were previously not available in English or on a central site on the Internet. Although the content of polls may vary, we will focus on issues of salient importance to policymaking and regional diplomacy.
This program is a research partnership with the Advanced Systems and Concepts Office of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) to examine the multifaceted security challenges in and around the Northeast Asia region as it looks to the future.
The Mansfield Foundation provides opportunities for a limited number of graduate-level researchers and scholars from the United States and Asia to affiliate with the Foundation for 3-6 months, using the Foundation as a base from which to conduct research and write on topics related to U.S.-Asia relations and foreign policy. Visiting Fellows receive no salary or compensation from the Foundation; however, they may participate in activities of the Foundation and access its networks of Asia specialists.
