French expectations for the 2019 G7: leaders should tackle poverty in Africa

Published 2 September 2019 in Surveys

There is widespread agreement among voters that the French government should use its G7 Presidency in 2019 to tackle poverty in Africa (57%). Only 22% of French people reject this idea.

However, since there the G7 is not a well-known international event in France, 21% of those questioned said that they were unable to say whether or not the G7 should focus on tackling poverty in Africa.

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