Political Polling in Asia-Pacific

In Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines POLITICAL POLLING has developed into an integral -and often controversial- segment of the political fabric. Australia and New Zealand have taken polling to even more sophisticated levels.


At this conference, the authors of the publication ‘Political Polling in Asia-Pacific’ will present their work and debate and discuss various aspects of political polling in interaction with the audience. Topics include the impact of polling on the society and the political establishment, the use of emerging technologies as valuable tools for pollsters and researchers, and how social media change the public opinion building process.
