Improving Lives: The Impact of U.S. Foreign Assistance

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The Washington-based non-profit organization Terror Free Tomorrow will release results from recent polling in Indonesia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh on the impact of U.S. foreign assistance on public opinion in these three important Muslim countries. Terror Free Tomorrow polling in Indonesia and Pakistan in the past has revealed strong linkages between U.S. humanitarian assistance following the December 2004 tsunami and October 2005 Pakistan earthquake and positive public perceptions of America. How did the U.S. coordinate and implement these two successful humanitarian endeavors? And, how can we improve our ongoing bilateral U.S. assistance programs to produce the same kind of international goodwill that our humanitarian relief efforts have generated?
