This project aims to create a time-series dataset about the knowledge and attitudes of current college students from around the world towards a series of issues which are related to great power politics and good governance in the 21st century.

The project plans to cover 10 years that will be divided into two phases of five years each. The first year (2015) covered more than 30 universities in the US, China, Russia, etc., and gathered the initial data for a preliminary analysis, which is under way. Data collection will be expanded to include more countries down the way.

This research has received the approval of the institutional review board (IRB) of Human Subjects and the support of the School of Arts and Communication at Florida Institute of Technology.

The leading investigator is Dr. Wanfa Zhang, associate professor of political science, School of Arts and Communication. He can be reached at: globalpolitics@fit.edu.
