Moralization, Emotionalization, Polarization

The transfer project "Moralisierung, Emotionalisierung, Polarisierung. Ein b├╝rgerwissenschaftliches Reallabor mit Alltagsexperten" (Moralization, Emotionalization, Polarization. A civic science real laboratory for experts of everyday life) disseminates the results of the research project. A particular focus lies on reaching heterogeneous social milieus.

For this purpose, we developed a format for scientific dialogue, in which civic and scientific voices start a conversation. We put this into practice by means of workshops that have been conducted with different cooperation partners.
