Protest, learning and political change.

What are the consequences of protest events such as mobilizations against cuts, 8M or protests by pensioners in the way of thinking and doing citizenship policy?

PROTEiCA is a research project focused on exploring the relationship between individual experience of protest, learning and changes in political attitudes, both for people who go out to the streets to protest and stay at home And they live indirectly through the media.

To investigate these issues we conduct personal interviews and surveys. PROTEiCA is a research for academic purposes, which has public funding (financed by FEDER/Ministry of Science, Innovation and universities-State research Agency (reference CS2017-84861-P)) that aims to generate knowledge that To improve our political system from rigorous data, elaborated following the scientific methodology applied to the knowledge of the social phenomena. It is coordinated by Pablo de Olavide University and includes researchers from other universities and research centres such as the Autonomous University of Madrid or the European University Institute of Florence. We also have two observer entities (EPOs), the State Coordinator for the Defense of the Public Pension System (COESPE) and + democracy, as part of the civil society that allows a greater dissemination of the results of the investigation.
