Transatlantic Trends 2022:Public Opinion in Times of Geopolitical Turmoil

Transatlantic Trends is a project co-led by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Bertelsmann Foundation (North America), Inc. (BFNA). It is a study of public opinion on global order, security and defense, emerging challenges, transatlantic relations, and the role of the EU and NATO, as well as relations with China and Russia. The 2022 edition of the survey was conducted in 14 countries (11 countries in Europe, the United States, Canada, and Türkiye) between June and July 2022. It offers both cross-country analyses and detailed demographic breakdowns of the data, and hence provides a deep dive into public opinion on the challenges facing the transatlantic relationship in the years to come.
