Public Policy & Public Opinion

Public opinion and public policy are intrinsically linked. Public opinion can either constrain or widen options for public policy, while policy discourse simultaneously influences public opinion formation.  CCPP research focuses on how mediated policy discourse influences processes of opinion formation across a range policy domains including science, technology, and the environment, public health, and foreign affairs.
