The Lowy Institute Poll broke new ground this year, conducting national public opinion surveys simultaneously in Australia and Indonesia. The report contains responses from both countries to questions on foreign and security policy, global affairs, and each other. Some of the questions focus on Australia's relationship with Indonesia. Others, first asked in Australia in 2005 and repeated from one survey to the next, will reveal deep changes in opinion over time. The remainder were taken from a wider international study focused on the rise of China and India. The 2006 poll was conducted in partnership with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, which fielded parallel surveys in China, India and the United States.
