Speaking to the heart: How to increase emotional legitimacy in democracies

Speaking to the heart: How to increase emotional legitimacy in democracies

Workshop

29 October 2020

4:45 PM – 6:15 PM (CET)

Have you heard of „emotional legitimacy“? Probably not, as the focus is usually on public authorities‘ „output“ and „throughput“ legitimacy. Analysing how governments can increase trust through careful attention to process, output and emotions, this workshop will share a vision of what a fully empathetic state might look like in 2035. Empathy can indeed be the breaking point for today’s democracies, as the BLM and yellow vests movements recently showed. We will explore how future governments might take emotions into account better, as well as present cases where this is already happening, today.

The workshop takes place on Zoom. Spots are limited.
