Shattering stereotypes: public opinion and foreign policy

20 March 2012

The findings of the latest Lowy Institute Indonesia Poll challenge many assumptions about Indonesia.

The Lowy Institute Indonesia Poll reports the results of the Institute’s second opinion poll in Indonesia. The findings challenge many assumptions about Indonesia on issues like attitudes towards Australia and the United States, openness to foreign investment, democracy, trust in other countries, and China’s rise.

Several questions were repeated from the Institute’s 2006 poll in Indonesia allowing for comparison of Indonesian attitudes over time.
