On November 16 at 12pm on Zoom, Sherry L. Martin (Acting Asia Division Chief in the U.S. Department of State's Office of Opinion Research) will give a talk that provides a historical overview of trends in the Asian publics' views of key U.S. alliances and regional institutions in the Indo-Pacific over the course of the post-World War II period. This retrospective analysis provides insights into the utility of tracking polls to U.S. policymakers when there has been a proliferation of new institutions and reconfigurations of old alliances across the region. Public opinion will play an important role in steering the future of the United States in the Pacific and in determining which interests get codified in rules, norms, and institutions.
