AmCham and United Spaces invite you to join us for a light lunch as Bruce Stokes, Director, Global Economic Attitudes at the Pew Research Center, and Torbjörn Sjöström, CEO of Novus, who will share their insights into the Swedish election, the upcoming mid-term elections in the United States and how polling, confidence and trade attitudes are reflected in their research. Questions about polling forecasting, what it can tell us, and why it sometimes doesn’t match the outcome will also be a topic.
As the Director of Global Economic Attitudes at Pew Research Center, Bruce Stokes assesses public views about economic conditions, foreign policy and values. Bruce is also a non-resident fellow at the German Marshall Fund and an associate fellow at Chatham House. He is the former international economics correspondent for the National Journal, a former senior transatlantic fellow at the German Marshall Fund and a former senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, where he is a member.
Torbjörn Sjöström is responsible for the political polling at Novus, a leading market research firm in Sweden. Novus was founded in 2006 with the ambition of reconciling traditional survey methodology with modern media, thus leading companies from insight to insight. With this goal in mind, Torbjörn is helping to educate major newsrooms in Sweden about opinion polls. He was awarded European CEO of the Year 2016 in both the Market Research Industry and Media & Communications Industry categories.
Peter Dahlen, Managing Director of AmCham Sweden, will moderate the Q & A session.
