POLKOM-Monday: Finnish elites, trust and political conflict

Monday 20. March Lotta Lounasmeri from The  University of Helsinki will present the following:

Finnish elites, trust and political conflict 

The project focuses on discovering factors affecting the creation and maintenance of elite trust relations in the Finnish polity in two comparative cases from the energy sector. The objective is to analyze, what happens and how members of the elite react, when a political process becomes conflictual and the conflict surfaces in public. The role and significance of both private and public trust is looked at: how do the elites see the significance of communication in the elite networks and in public? The empirical material will consist of 60 in-depth interviews of key figures involved in the chosen cases.

Time and place: 20. March at 11.30 in room 418, Departement of Media and Communication, UiO.
