For nineteen years, the Lowy Institute’s flagship annual poll has revealed how Australians see the world and their place in it. It is the leading Australian survey on foreign policy and informs public debate.
In the wake of extraordinary shocks to the global order, the 2023 Lowy Institute Poll examines how Australians view major powers and world leaders, the threats facing the nation, and the risk of conflict in the region. It asks Australians what they think of plans to bolster the nation’s defence capabilities. And it shows how attitudes on the economy, democracy and climate change have evolved over time.
