POWER AND THE PERCEPTION OF THE FUTURE
Abstract:This paper reports on a six-nation massive survey investigating the relationship between assessments of social power and peace agreement, pessimism - optimism, and expectations of conflict in the future. Over 10,000 individuals between the ages of 15 and 40, in both east and west European countries, responded to interviews lasting two hours. The results of the analysis carried out show: (1) that low social power is related to peace agreement; (2) subjects low in social power tend to be pessimistic about the future; and (3) subjects low in social power tend to expect more conflict between potential conflict groups.
