The World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR) will hold its 75th Annual Conference together with the WAPOR Asia Pacific 5th Annual Conference on 10-15 November 2022 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The WAPOR conference will convene before and overlap with the 5th WAPOR Asia Pacific regional conference.

The conference committee welcomes proposals on topics related to public opinion broadly, especially those related to the conference theme.

Conference Theme: 75 Years of Worldwide Public Opinion Research

This year, WAPOR highlights the role and application of survey research in monitoring public opinion across the world since the end of WWII. This period has witnessed continuous and ongoing innovations in the conduct, analysis and interpretation of public opinion research, and this information is routinely disseminated across the globe. This research has become an essential element of a connected world and is now used to inform citizens, governments, private businesses, and academic researchers on countless topics. At the same time, public opinion research is not without its limitations and its critics.

WAPOR welcomes proposal submissions that deal with these and related issues, in one of three conference formats including panels, research papers and posters. Relevant submissions that focus on all aspects of public opinion and survey research are encouraged. These topics include, but are not restricted to:

  • Good governance and public opinion research
  • Public opinion and public diplomacy
  • Public opinion and policymaking
  • Public opinion and survey research
  • Survey research application
  • News, media, journalism and public opinion
  • Panel, longitudinal and national monitoring surveys in policymaking
  • New technologies and national surveys: challenges in the changing times
  • New sources of information on public opinion and the use of social media
  • Political behavior, participation and culture in survey research
  • Methodological challenges and improvements in the areas of sampling, measurement, survey design and survey response or non-response
  • Challenges of comparative research and International Survey Projects
  • Cross-cultural concerns in data collection and measurement issues
  • Qualitative research in changing times
