Improving global governance
Sep 28, 2013 | Pew Research Center

Clear majorities in 22 of the 39 countries surveyed by the Pew Research Center have a favorable view of the United Nations, including the permanent members of the Security Council Britain, France and the U.S. Ratings for the UN are on balance favorable in Russia, but the Chinese are divided in their opinion. Views trend negatively in key Middle Eastern publics, including Israel, the Palestinian territories, Jordan and Turkey. Overall, a median of 58 percent across all countries surveyed express favorable views of the UN, with just 27 percent holding an unfavorable opinion. Young people are more positive toward the international body than older people, as are those with a college degree or higher incomes.
