Peace Perceptions Poll 2018

International Alert

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Through the Peace Perceptions Poll, International Alert asked more than 100,000 people in 15 countries – from those in active conflicts to those in relative peace – about their views on peace and conflict.

The poll sought to answer questions around how people experience and respond to violence where they live, what contributes to more peaceful and secure societies, and how they think their government should respond to conflict.

The findings show a public appetite for an approach to violence that moves beyond crisis response towards long-term conflict prevention, commonly termed "peacebuilding".
