In September and October 2020, the Sinophone Borderlands project at Palacký University Olomouc conducted a wide-scale survey of public opinion on China in 13 European countries.

The polled countries include: Czechia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain,  Sweden, and the United Kingdom.

Here, we present the basic findings of the survey, which are a result of a joint analysis of the survey data by CEIAS and Sinophone Borderlands.

A primary outcome of the analysis is a comparative report where opinions about China, its position on the global stage vis-a-vis other powers, and its actions during the COVID-19 pandemic are compared among the 13 polled countries.

This will be followed up by country-level reports, which look deeper into the data and take into account domestic polical situation as well. The country-level reports will be gradually released and posted on this site.

The reports were prepared in cooperation with partners from other European think-tanks and universities.
