On June 29 the Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security hosted a discussion on international views of America’s Role in the World in collaboration with Pew Research Center, featuring the launch of Pew Research Center’s annual report on the global image of the United States.

The report focuses on questions related to how the rest of the world views the United States, and its policies and leaders, and how those views compare to global attitudes toward China. The survey explores the range of views on America’s role in the world, which country is the world’s leading economic and military power, the level of confidence in President Obama, and support for the US-led effort against ISIS. It also looks at confidence in US presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Molly O’Toole of Foreign Policy, David Rennie of the Economist, and Richard Wike from Pew Research Center led the discussion, which included a survey of the audience in attendance with questions from the Pew report.
