The Intercultural Trends Report of the Anna Lindh Foundation, established in 2010, represents a landmark study in cross-cultural trends and social change across Europe and the southern and eastern Mediterranean region. The Report, entering its third edition in 2018, is based on a unique public opinion survey carried out with citizens across the Mediterranean as an instrument for measuring trends in cultural relations and triggering action for change at the policy level of regional cooperation.
The Intercultural Trends Survey, commissioned by the Anna Lindh Foundation and carried out by Ipsos, was conducted in eight European countries (Austria, Croatia, Finland, France, Italy, Poland, Portugal and the Netherlands) and five Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEM) countries/territories (Algeria, Israel, Jordan, Palestine and Tunisia); the target population consisted of all individuals aged 15 or older and resident in the country/territory. Fieldwork took place between 19 September 2016 and 8 November 2016 and during that period 1,000 interviews were completed in each of the countries/territories covered. In most countries a CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing) methodology was implemented. In Israel and Palestine, on the other hand, face-to-face interviewing was applied.
