IGA’s Independent America Project Speaks with the John Quincy Adams Society
How does the world see America today?
The Institute for Global Affairs (IGA) came out in June with their annual survey of international perceptions of American democracy. As the Biden administration works to restore the credibility of the United States on the world stage, we found favorable views of both the United States and American democracy are at a four-year high. The report also found favorable views of President Biden’s foreign policy decisions, including Ukraine and Afghanistan. At the same time, views of American democracy from respondents in China are at a four-year low. The report is based on nearly 5,000 survey takers in nine politically and geographically diverse countries. Respondents were asked detailed questions about the United States, its democracy, and its global influence. IGA shared its most notable findings with JQAS and discussed possible implications for US foreign policy going forward. IGA researchers Zuri Linetsky, Caroline Gray, and Lucas Robinson spoke with us.
