Domestic Support for Russia’s War on Ukraine: What We Know
This event is online only.
Join us for a meeting of the New York-Russia Public Policy Series, co-hosted by the Harriman Institute at Columbia University and the New York University Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia.
Many polls suggest that the majority of Russians consistently approve of Russia’s war on Ukraine. However, various experts and activists have argued that polling in an authoritarian regime, especially during the war, may be unreliable. How much should we trust these surveys, and what evidence of Russians’ support of or opposition to the war do we have? At this panel, scholars of Russian public opinion will present their new findings on support for the invasion of Ukraine and Vladimir Putin’s regime, talk about how these attitudes changed since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion, and discuss what we can and cannot learn from survey research in these circumstances.
This event is supported by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
