Program on International Policy Attitudes


The Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) is a joint program of the Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland and the Center for the Study of Policy Attitudes. PIPA undertakes research on American attitudes in both the public and in the policymaking community toward a variety of international and foreign policy issues. It seeks to disseminate its findings to members of government, the press, and the public, as well as academia.

The Center for International and Security Studies at Maryland (CISSM), at the University of Maryland's School of Public Affairs, pursues policy-oriented scholarship on major issues facing the United States in the global arena. Using its research, forums, and publications, CISSM links the University and the policy community to improve communication between scholars and practitioners.

The Center for the Study of Policy Attitudes (CSPA) is an independent nonprofit organization of social science researchers devoted to increasing understanding of public and elite attitudes shaping contemporary public policy. Using innovative research methods, CSPA seeks not only to examine overt policy opinions or positions, but to reveal the underlying values, assumptions, and feelings that sustain such opinions.


PIPA recently issued a poll report, Americans on Defense Spending - A Study of US Public Attitudes.
