Presentation: Disrespect and System Trust

Christina Neuigkeiten

At the 15th meeting of the „Fachgruppe Sozialpsychologie“ in Potsdam, Germany, Christina Mölders presented her research on how disrespect in political debates can damage trust in the political system: If a political actor is observed to behave disrespectfully, the whole group of politicians seems less trustworthy-at least if the actor is perceived as typical for his/her group. Through this, systen trust is damaged, too.
