Transatlantic Trends 2022: Public Opinion in Times of Geopolitical Turmoil

October 19, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

The geopolitical turmoil of 2022 presents a multitude of challenges for the transatlantic community. How is public opinion responding to these challenges?

Transatlantic Trends 2022 presents the results of surveys conducted in 14 countries throughout the transatlantic community: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Divided into four sections, Transatlantic Trends provides a detailed picture of public opinion on core and contemporary issues: global order, transatlantic relations, international security and defense, and relations with China. The findings are meant to be a helpful tool for policymakers, business leaders, experts, academia, and the media.

Transatlantic Trends is a project co-led by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Bertelsmann Foundation (North America), Inc., with the generous support of the BBVA Foundation, the Jean Monnet Centre Montréal, the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD), the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation Türkiye, and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in France.

Join the American Council on Germany for a presentation of the key findings of this year’s survey on October 19th. We’ll be joined by Bruce Stokes, Visiting Senior Fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

Bruce Stokes is a visiting senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund of the United States and senior editor of the 2022 Transatlantic Trends public opinion survey. He also co-authored the recent GMF study Designing Ukraine’s Recovery in the Spirit of the Marshall Plan.
