Changing opinions in favour of international development aid

Published 27 August 2019 in Surveys

French people are more and more in favour of an increase of French development aid to the poorest countries.

Between 2013 and 2018, the percentage of those in favour of an increase has risen from 18% to 33%.

In comparison with the other three countries where the survey is conducted (Germany, the UK and the US), this result is unique to France; no other country has seen such a steady change (and rise) in support for increased development aid.

This data comes from our survey conducted by the YouGov Institute and piloted by the research team at University College London and the University of Birmingham as part of the project Aid Attitudes Tracker which measures the evolution of opinions and behaviors on issues of international solidarity in four countries.
