GQR’s insightful opinion research and winning strategies help to power the campaigns of progressive leaders and NGOs around the world.
Starting with Nelson Mandela’s historic victory in South Africa in 1994, GQR has helped scores of leaders across six continents to run stronger campaigns and win more support. All three of Tony Blair’s campaigns. Australia’s first elected woman Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. The elections of Central European reformers like Viktor Yushchenko and Mikheil Saakashvili. Modernizing leaders in Latin America, including Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes and Bolivian President Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada. The Nobel prize winning Campaign to Ban Landmines.
With experience in more than 90 countries, we help leaders define their vision, strengthen their parties, build their campaigns, win their elections, and sustain support while governing.
Our work around the world spans all levels—presidents, parliaments, governors, and mayors. GQR’s experience includes 2-party and multi-party dynamics; single-round and multi-stage elections; first-past-the-post and proportional representation systems. We understand the importance of coalition dynamics. On every populated continent, we have helped politicians and governments do better at understanding their people and meeting their needs. We give campaigns an edge, finding innovative ways to break through and win the toughest races.
GQR has pioneered ways to conduct opinion research everywhere in the world: among Houthi rebels in Yemen; in the favelas of Brazil; and with top decision-makers in Japan. In countries where no public opinion infrastructure exists, we build our own. We have created new opinion research organizations from the ground-up in hard-to-reach countries from Liberia to Curacao. Whatever your challenge, we have the skills and experience to meet it.
