2022 (English)In: Perspectives on Political Awareness: Conceptual, Theoretical and Methodological Issues / [ed] Nørgaard Kristensen, Niels; Denk, Thomas; Olson, Maria; Solhaug, Trond, Cham: Springer Nature, 2022, 1, p. 1-12Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This interdisciplinary volume presents a comprehensive framework to understand political awareness. Political awareness has become an important part of research on political attitudes and political behavior since the publication of John Zaller's work on political opinion. The authors elaborate on his theory and present a new conceptualization, which stipulates that political awareness is the attentiveness, knowledge, and understanding of politics. Hence, the book discusses different aspects, such as the concept of political awareness, its formation, significance, measurement, and exploration. The result is a new framework that addresses conceptual, theoretical, and methodological questions, such as: What does the concept mean? How to study political awareness? How is it connected to other orientations? How do children and youth develop political awareness? Addressing researchers and graduate students, as well as scholars in political science, sociology, and education, this book is a must-read for everybody interested in a better understanding of political awareness.
