This project represents the largest, most careful and systematic comparative survey of attitudes and values toward politics, power, reform, democracy and citizens' political actions in East Asia. Cross-national comparative surveys have been implemented in nine East Asian political systems -namely Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Mainland China, Mongolia, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. In each of the nine countries or regions, a national research team administers a country-wide face-to-face survey using standardized survey instruments to compile the required micro-level data under a common research framework and research methodology.
