M.A.

Among the questions that Richard Örhvall tries to answer with his research:

  • How equal is different types of political participation and how can we explain inequality in participation?

  • How is the habit of voting or not voting formed, and how does the context affect young people's propensity to vote in their first election?

  • How corrupt is a ”non-corrupt” country such as Sweden and do citizens trust their politicians and civil servants?

  • What are the effects of the increasing non-response in surveys on the survey quality?
