The Americas and the World is an ongoing re­search project that aims to study public opi­nion and political culture in the Americas on key issues in foreign policy and international relations. The project consists of a biennial survey administered in different countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, and North America to gather basic information with respect to the opinions, attitudes, beliefs, interests, aspirations, and values of their citizens in a global context. The survey is carried out every two years with representative samples of the national population in various countries throughout the region. The current report presents the results of the 2010-2011 edition of the survey, updated to include a wider range of countries, events, and issues.
