AOPSSS #27 “A Warning from Above: Why Authoritarian Anti-Protest Propaganda Works”

In the twenty-seventh AOPSSS session, Mai Truong (University of Arizona) & Minh Trinh (MIT) presented their new paper showing that anti-protest propaganda deters support for protests by influencing the audience’s beliefs about government’s intention and capacity much more than it does by shaping their perception of the protesters’ legitimacy. Chen Xi (The Chinese University of Hong Kong) and Peter Lorentzen (University of San Francisco) offered detailed comments about a range of theoretical and conceptual issues. Looking forward to seeing the next version of the paper!
