BBC World Service Poll

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    The BBC World Service has released a poll it conducted of citizens in the following range of countries:

    USA, UK, Canada, Australia
    France, Germany, Spain, Greece, Russia
    Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Peru
    Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana
    China, South Korea
    India, Pakistan, Indonesia

    The results are very interesting. Of all the questions asked about immigration, Germany had a relatively low proportion of people who were approving, but by far the largest proportion refusing to give an answer, suggesting (to me) that the population is rather afraid of voicing negative opinions. (The poll was conducted in February 2016, so after the media (finally) decided to cover the Cologne attacks)

    Another interesting note is that the proportion of those in OECD countries seeing themselves as global, rather than national, citizens dropped hugely after 2009, below the level of non-OECD countries

    Edit: Apparently I need to upload the images, and save post, one at a time, else weird things happen
