RDV: The role of perceptions and attitudes of public officials

May 16 @ 14:15 - 15:30

In this digital RDV seminar, research professor Steven Van de Walle will share from his innovative research on the attitudes and perceptions of policymakers and public managers. His research uses methodologies such as eye-tracking and vignette experiments to establish what influences public managers’ attitudes towards citizen’s participation, and how policymakers use uncertain information.
