Dr. Richard Johnston

In this two-day workshop, participants will explore the ins and outs of campaigns: do campaigns matter? And what are they really?

Dr. Johnston will take you through the various approaches to understanding what is inside voters’ heads, what they consider, what impacts their cognition, what the difference is between conversion versus mobilization, and the direct pathways to voter consideration. He will also explore other agents involved in campaigns, including mass media, social media and the voters themselves; along with the corresponding challenges posed by each to electoral coordination.
