People tend to think about politics as the realm of ideas and opinions. Everyone in a contemporary democracy engages with politics, makes political decisions, and has the right to contribute to the affairs of the nation.

Politics, however, can be studied scientifically. Some even attempt to design “laws” similar to those of the physical sciences.

In this event you will have the opportunity to play a number of games and engage in a number of activities that will show you some interesting ways that science can help you understand politics, voting and political behaviour in general. It is targeted to the general adult public or young adult public interested in politics and in understanding how science can play a role in the realm of politics.

There is no prior knowledge necessary or assumed. Activities will be carried-out individually and in small groups.
