What’s Trust Got to Do With It?

UJ-HSRC Covid-19 Democracy Survey Round 2 Public Launch

This webinar addresses some of the main new findings of the online multilingual Covid-19 Democracy Survey conducted by researchers from the University of Johannesburg’s Centre for Social Change (CSC) and the Human Sciences Research Council’s Developmental, Capable and Ethical State division (DCES).

Round 1 of the survey covered the early hard lockdown period and early part of level 4 between 13 April to 13 May 2020. During the webinar, the first presentation of follow-up findings from Round 2 of the survey will be presented, looking at patterns of change among South Africans from a social sciences and humanities perspective.
