CREECA Fall Lecture Series

Thursday, November 16, 2017, 4:00PM - 5:30PM
Location:  206 Ingraham Hall
"Social Media and Protest Participation: Evidence from Russia". Join CREECA in welcoming Ruben Enikolopov, Associate Professor of Economics at New Economic School (Moscow), as he presents work on a collaborative research project conducted with Maria Petrova and Aleksey Makarin. In their research, they test empirically the affect of social media on participation in political protests. Using example of political protests in Russia in December 2011 they show that increased penetration of social media led to higher probability of the protests and reduced costs.
