Although political development depends on many factors, an important component is the social and political values of the public. For the first time in human history, we have systematic evidence on some aspects of public opinion for the vast majority of nations in the world. These tend to focus on the cultural prerequisites for democracy, the development of democratic elections, and the policy priorities of these publics. The following resources and readings highlight the new research being done in developing nations, which is one of the most rapidly growing areas of public opinion research.
