Telling a new story about Europe: Insights from Psychology (Grassroots for Europe)

Telling a New Story About Europe: Some insights from psychology and implications for the pro-EU campaign
Psychological science has much to offer pro-EU campaigners, but throughout the campaign, insights from psychology have not been prominent. This webinar organised by Grassroots for Europe will focus on one set of insights: that people think in ways that are conditioned by their world views, expressed as an emotional investment in identities and attitudes that are difficult to shake.
Nick Crosby will introduce some ideas about how these psychological factors can be used to frame better stories about our European future, and Richard Bentall will outline recent research that carries important lessons for opposition parties about how to pitch their position on Europe. The session will be chaired by Jane Thomas, who will lead a discussion on how to translate these insights into practical campaigning.
