Content from the Brookings Institution India Center is now archived. After seven years of an impactful partnership, as of September 11, 2020, Brookings India is now the Centre for Social and Economic Progress, an independent public policy institution based in India.

What do members of the Indian public think about their leaders and their country’s place in the world? As part of its Global Attitudes Project, the Pew Research Center released a major survey of Indian public opinion. The findings include attitudes towards:

– Prime Minister Modi’s approval rating, his handling of issues, and his leadership style
– Public perceptions of other Indian leaders, including Rahul Gandhi and Arvind Kejriwal
– Views on India’s place in the world, its involvement with the global economy, and military spending
– Attitudes towards China

To reveal the results of the survey and analyse some of its findings, Brookings India organised a public discussion on September 20, featuring Bruce Stokes of the Pew Research Center.
