|ICRIER and the Asia Society India Centre held a discussion via videoconference on “The Rise of China and India: Implications for the United States and the International Order.” The survey results from the 2006 Chicago Council on Global Affairs Public Opinion Study were presented on October 11, 2006 from 5:30- 6:15 PM Indian Time at the TERI Videoconference Room, Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
The Chicago Council’s biennial public opinion studies are among the most comprehensive and widely cited surveys of American attitudes towards U.S. foreign policy and international relations. The survey includes polling undertaken by the Chicago Council, in cooperation with Asia Society in the US, China, and India, with parallel surveys carried out by partner organizations in South Korea and Australia.
The study compares international attitudes on how the emergence of China and India as economic dynamos and claimants to great power status will affect the global economy, international security, and politics. It assesses public opinion in the surveyed countries on a variety of challenges, including international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, conflict in the Middle East, the rising economic and political power of Asia, economic competition from other countries, and threats to energy supplies and the environment. The study also presented Chinese and Indian views on international challenges and opportunities and their respective roles as emerging economic powers.
