This paper aims to present the baseline English survey used in the other papers in this special issue.
The survey includes yes/no, Likert scale and free text responses, which were analysed quantitatively and qualitatively.
Respondents to the survey expressed divergent views of whether they would emulate Snowden, even though most in all countries believed he had helped rather than harmed society.
This is the only such broad survey on attitudes to Snowden of which the authors are aware.
This study was supported by the MEXT (Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan) Programme for Strategic Research Bases at Private Universities (2012-2016) project “Organisational Information Ethics” S1291006 and the JSPS Grant-in-Aids for Scientific Research (B) 24330127 and (B) 25285124.
