DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF A SYSTEM RECORDING POLITICAL AND SOCIAL RADICALISM IN GREECE

Abstract: 

The proposed project seeks to:

  • design a system of empirically recording political and social radicalism in Greece,
  • manage the system through the establishment of an Observatory and, finally,
  • draw on the findings of the inventory in order to design public policies.

We can clearly distinguish three phases:

  • design of empirical measures,
  • setting up of a research unit and data collecting, and
  • active promotion of research findings in public policy design.

Each phase corresponds to the work carried out by each of the three research groups.

The design phase is necessary to clarify the phenomenon of political and social radicalism, that is to identify (a) the attitudes and positions related to the phenomenon and (b) those factors that are linked to extremism in the chain of causality, either as causes or as consequences. Next thing required in the design phase is the construction of indicators and measurement scales.

The project will then focus on the setting up of a research institute (Observatory) which will undertake the implementation of cross-sectional and panel surveys to measure radicalism in Greek public opinion and reveal the causes and consequences of radicalism in specific populations, such as young, unemployed, small-traders, residents of areas with high rates of unemployment and/or migration.

The third part of the project focuses on potential exploitation of the findings, such as construction of structures to enable free access to the survey data, reaching agreements with similar foreign institutes to enable the use of the findings for research purposes, submission of findings to public consultation with bodies of state and civil society, and design of special training seminars on radicalism followed by experiments with school population.
