The Challenges of Exploring and Studying Citizens' Participation and Voice in a more (Dis)Connected World
by Rosario Aguilar / Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas
Friday, March 23 /3:15 pm /Popper room
Chair: Andres Moles (Central European University)
Abstract / At the end of the 20th century the perspective of closer connections among citizens of different societies as well as the access to information brought the hope that people would trust each other more, would be more informed, and would demand better government performance. Nowadays that does not seem to be the case. In this talk I would cover the effect that motivated reasoning and prejudice have on people's political behavior as well as on how to study and think about them.
