BBC Global Survey: A world divided?

Ideas for a better World |

A global Ipsos MORI study, carried out in 27 countries for the BBC as part of its Crossing Divides season, highlights the extent to which people think their society is divided.

Three-quarters around the world say their country’s society is divided – and the majority think their country is now more divided than it was 10 years ago, especially in Europe. Differences in political views are seen as the greatest cause of tension, followed by differences between rich and poor. However, despite these divisions, the majority of people in most countries agree that people across the world have more things in common than things that make them different.
