Understanding Society: Economic Crises, Election Victories, New Challenges

I am pleased to share the Ipsos Social Research Institute’s latest report – Understanding Society: Economic crises, election victories, new challenges.

This report brings together experts from across the Ipsos Social Research Institute to consider the period of extraordinary change many nations have witnessed over the last few years, since the 2007/8 global economic crisis. Understanding Society covers a range of key political, social and economic issues facing the world, including:

  • How public opinion across the world has shifted as the economic crisis unfolded
  • An analysis of three elections on three continents – in the USA, France and Venezuela
  • An interview with Dr David Halpern, Director of the Behavioural Insights Team in the UK Prime Minister’s Office on affecting societal change by applying lessons from behavioural economics
  • Attitudes towards immigration and border controls in Europe and particularly the Schengen area
  • The global public’s view on foreign aid spending
  • How program evaluation in an Indian state is helping to drive progress towards the Millennium Development Goals
  • How children in Europe use the internet, and the importance of distinguishing between risk and harm.
