Today is the official start of the project PROTEMO: Investigating the Emotions of Protective Policies funded by Horizon Europe, with Katarzyna Hamer leading the Polish part:

We are thrilled to launch the PROTEMO project in Coimbra, 🇵🇹 Portugal!
With 8 international partners, we are on a mission to investigate the emotions of policies that promise security and safety to individuals, referred to as 'protective policies.’
Over the next three years, we will explore the emotions that come into play when policy-makers propose these policies, observe the emotional reactions of the wider public, and analyse how these reactions influence the development of additional policies.
Our goal is to gain insights into how policy-making in representative democracies could look in the future, and we are eager to contribute our part!
