Voters and Foreign Policy: Evidence from a Survey Experiment in Pakistan

Joint Seminar on South Asian Politics

Christopher ClaryPostdoctoral Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University

In traditional surveys in Pakistan, the vast majority of respondents identify India as an enemy and a serious threat to Pakistan. Do these beliefs affect voter choices? In a novel survey experiment, we find that voters punish politicians who advocate a friendly policy toward India, but only modestly. Candidate attitudes toward India were the least meaningful characteristic for voter choice among five characteristics tested.

Cosponsored with Brown University, MIT, and the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs

Reception to follow.
