Kari Steen-Johnsen (ISF) will present today. The presentation is titled "Terror, trust and political attitudes - insight from a comparative project". 

In her talk, Steen-Johnsen will present findings on how terrorism affects generalized social trust and out-group trust, based on the large scale project «Disruption, Social Capital and Resilience» (lenke). Using longitudinal, comparative  and experimental approaches the project has examined the impact of the 22nd of July attacks, as well as the Paris, Nice and Barcelona attacks on citizens’ trust and political attitudes.  Steen-Johnsen will discuss different theoretical approaches to making sense of the variations in responses among different terrorist attacks and groups of citizens, and reflect in particular on the interpretation of findings from the survey experiments used.
