WAPOR Issues Statement of Basic Values and Principles
WAPOR STATEMENT OF JULY 27, 2020 REAFFIRMING OUR BASIC VALUES AND PRINCIPLES
In light of events that took place in 2020, the World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR) publicly reaffirms its commitment to the basic principles upon which it was founded. These include promotion in each country of the right to conduct scientific research regarding the beliefs and opinions of the public and the right to freely publish this information so as to make it available to all citizens. As such, we are deeply concerned when any government seeks to limit the rights of the public to be heard by imposing any restrictions on the free practice and reporting of public opinion research.
