Psychology of Democracy - What's going on?
Mon 15 May 2017, 09:45 – 16:00 BST
If you're puzzled about Trump, bemused about Brexit and wondering what's happening to democracy, then this event is for you! It's the second Psychology of Democracy conference at Salford which will consider how well our political system works. Because it's about democracy the event is free to attend and there will be talks from specialists in the fields of psychology, political science and media guaranteed to stimulate debate and discussion. This conference will begin with a focus on politicians themselves - how they think, what they believe and how they communicate their ideas - and then consider the role of political communications, including the media, in recent political events and developments. Most importantly, the focus is on the principal actors in any democratic system - you!
