Lowy Institute polling puts foreign policy in context. As the leading tracking survey on Australian foreign policy, the annual Lowy Institute Poll provides insights into the constraints and opportunities public opinion creates for policy-makers. 

The Lowy Institute has conducted robust, independent polling of the Australian public annually since 2005, allowing opinion to be compared over time. As well as our established tracking questions, each poll include a range of new questions each year on the critical issues of the day.

The Institute has also conducted numerous polls overseas in a range of countries in the Indo-Pacific region such as ChinaIndonesiaIndiaFiji and New Zealand. These polls have provided valuable insights into how foreign publics view the world and the important issues their nations face in their international relations.
