Public Agenda confidence in U.S. foreign policy index. Americans wary of creating democracies abroad by Ana Maria Arumi( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of the Public Agenda Confidence in U.S. Foreign Policy Index finds new concerns pushing their way into public consciousness even as worries identified in the first edition persist. Most of the public ranks promoting democracy in other countries as the least important of the foreign policy goals we asked about (20 percent say it's "very important") and seems to doubt the United States can achieve it. Public concern seems to have moderated in some cases, as with America's image in the Muslim world. By contrast, public concern over oil prices and their impact on national security has gone from "zero to 60" in just a few months. A joint venture with Foreign Affairs with major support from the Ford Foundation
Walking a mile : a first step toward mutual understanding : a qualitative study exploring how Indians and non-Indians think about each other( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new study is one of the most in-depth examinations ever made of the thinking of American Indians and non-Indians about each other. The research--based on 12 focus groups conducted in 2006 and 2007--explores Indians' perceptions of their own place in contemporary American society and how non-Indians view American Indians, what they know (or think they know), the generalizations they make and stereotypes they hold, how their perceptions were formed and their interest in learning more. The research was made possible by a grant from The Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation
The charitable impulse : those who give to charities, and those who run them, talk about what's needed to keep the public trust by Ana Maria Arumi( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American donors are passionate and positive about the charities and nonprofits they support. But at the same time, according to focus groups, there are strong and spontaneous negative reactions when nonprofits adopt big-business type marketing and sales techniques. Typical giving tends to be based on personal experience and emotional connections. But givers also have a long memory for scandal and waste. And the current Congressional debate over accounting changes and increased regulation and reporting for nonprofits scarcely registers at all with this group. Conducted in collaboration with the Kettering Foundation and in partnership with the Independent Sector
