The Gallup Center for Muslim Studies is a nonpartisan research center dedicated to providing data-driven analysis, advice, and education on the views of Muslim populations around the world. It will draw upon Gallup"s unprecedented global research initiative, the Gallup World Poll and the Gallup Poll of the Muslim World*, to enable global leaders, institutions, and the public to make more informed decisions.
At the heart of its business, the Center for Muslim Studies will make its research available through educational and consulting services, as well as through written publications. Its groundbreaking course based on findings from the Gallup Poll of the Muslim World will examine evidence-based analysis of contemporary trends addressed by the poll of Muslim populations. For the general public, the Center will release highlights from its study by hosting discussion forums and through special reports and articles available on Gallup"s Web site or in the mass media.
Gallup"s Poll of the Muslim World asks Muslims about their beliefs regarding education, religion, democracy, culture, financial prosperity, and the media. Poll findings include insights into what Muslims think the West can do to improve relations with the world"s Muslim populations, and what they think Muslims can do to improve relations with the West.

* Gallup"s self-funded Poll of the Muslim World is conducted in 40 predominantly Muslim nations and among significant Muslim populations in the West. It is the first set of unified and scientifically representative views from 1.3 billion Muslims globally, and will provide the basis for the Center"s unique analytical perspective.
The Poll of the Muslim World is part of Gallup"s larger World Poll, a self-funded effort aimed at consistently measuring the well-being of 6 billion world citizens (a sample representing 95% of the Earth"s population) on a wide range of topics for the next 100 years.
