70th Annual Conference
WAPOR Annual Conference
15-17 July 2017 • Lisbon, Portugal
The World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR) will hold its 70th annual conference 15-17 July 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal. The WAPOR conference will convene immediately prior to, and overlap with, the first day of the European Survey Research Association (ESRA) conference.
Public Opinion and Policy-making
Recent technological developments have made it extremely easy for individuals to share their opinions, and persuade and mobilize others. Indeed, it is difficult to avoid mention or use of social media. Interestingly, while more and more citizens have access to means to express their opinions, more and more of them feel unrepresented and dissatisfied with political decision-making processes. They question their voice in the enactment of public policy, and they express disappointment and anger with the lack of responsiveness of political elites to public opinion. These deep feelings of discontent usually lead to bipolarization and surges of populism. Join us in Lisbon this summer for two and a half days of interesting and important research presented by professionals from around the globe.
