IVO - Partner of the Transatlantic Trends 2012

In mid-September 2012, the findings of the recent – yet the eleventh – public opinion research on Transatlantic Trends have been released. The initiator, author, and the chief sponsor of the project, which studies the opinions of the American and the European publics on the wide range of foreign-political issues, is German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF US). To extend the span of the inquiry, Russian Federation was surveyed for the first time this year.

In Slovakia, the results were officially released on September 12, 2012. The main conclusions were presented by Pavol Demeš, Senior Transatlantic Fellow GMF US, and Oľga Gyárfášová, Program Director of IVO, and commented on by Theodore Sedgwick, U.S. Ambassador to Slovakia, and Peter Burian, State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic (and former Ambassador to the United States). The event was participated by the number of diplomats, public officials, experts, and students.

Slovakia takes part in the international project since 2004. From the very beginning, IVO is the partner of GMF US in analyzing and presenting the interesting results.

The data and the full version of the report Transatlantic Trends are available at www.transatlantictrends.org.
