The Mitvim Institute’s Tenth Annual Public Opinion Survey on Israeli Foreign Policy was conducted in late August 2022. The survey was conducted by the Rafi Smith Institute and in collaboration with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, among a representative sample (both politically and demographically) of the adult population in Israel (800 men and women, Jews and Arabs) and with a sampling error of 3.5%. This document presents the findings of the survey, divided into four areas: the Israeli foreign policy apparatus, Israel’s foreign relations, Israel and its surrounding regions, and Israel and the Palestinians. This year the survey included, among other topics, questions about Israel’s stance on the war in Ukraine, the impact of the normalization agreements two years in and the potential of leveraging them to promote Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking, the climate crisis, and the Iranian nuclear threat.
