|Amount Awarded||USD 137,950.00|
|Grant Period||May 15, 2010 - May 14, 2012|
The project aims at proposing an ambitious and innovative strategy for building public support for reform policies in the context of growing mistrust between citizens and elites. The main concept behind “Influentials” is: citizens are influenced by individuals of their own social group. Thus the project is looking for those individuals who horizontally influence their own communities, who are habitually addressed for advice, the first who embrace new ideas and practices.
