Easton- System Stability, Support and Social Capital

January 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0


This week Jacob Spanke will give a presentation: “Easton- System Stability, Support and Social Capital” followed by a discussion.

David Easton applied system theory to pollical science. He thereby showed a political system relies on different kinds of support (e.g. from the people) to function properly. Jacob tries to connect this idea to the importance of social capital for a political system.

David Easton also theorized about the different kinds of political spheres (policy-system-community) a theory that is highly interesting in times of identity politics and might explain the development of trust in many political systems.

This event is part of our regular presentation and discussion session for researchers including PhD/master students.

This session is 7pm CET / 6pm UTC / 1pm EST / 12pm CST / 11am MST / 10am PST and will be facilitated by Jacob Spanke.

These sessions are a supportive way to connect with people. You can ask questions, get advice, discuss ideas or issues, get suggestions for literature to read, or you can just listen.

Do you want to present your research? Giving a short presentation to the group can be great practice for confirmation, thesis defense, or rehearsal for conference presentations. It can really help to formulate your ideas, get feedback on your research, and discuss your project.

Presentations can be helpful at various stages of your research program. In the early stages it can be helpful to get feedback from the group to help formulate your research, and later in your research to make sense of the data and practice presenting your final results.

Generally, presentations are 15 min (or shorter). The content of your presentation will depend on your research stage.
