Date: February 8, 2013

Location: Robertson Hall, Carleton University, Ottawa

This international workshop will explore public attitudes toward environmental issues and policies, focusing on similarities and differences between Canada and Europe. Carleton researchers join with experts from the US and Europe to analyze cross-national survey data from the International Social Survey Programme and to explore mechanisms through which public attitudes may (or may not) have an impact on government policy.
