Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia invites to a presentation on

Economic Perceptions and Political Trust in the Caucasus”

to be delivered by Rafael Oganesyan (doctoral student – University of Nevada, Las Vegas)

This paper analyzes the impact of economic attitudes on political trust in the Caucasus. Results suggest that the electorate relies on perceptions of the economy in its assessment of trust in the presidency and the parliament. Higher levels of economic well being increase the likelihood of placing trust in both institutions. Moreover, the study suggests that intra-regional differences exist with regard to non-economic covariates. While the presence of corruption and bribery adversely affect political trust within the Armenian and Azerbaijani sample, the relationship is null within the Georgian electorate. 

Rafael Oganesyan holds a Master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the Lee Business School (UNLV). Rafael’s research interest include economic voting,  Kantian peace triad, and ethno-territorial Islamic terrorist organizations. Currently, he is a research assistant in a National Science Foundation-sponsored grant looking into the presence of implicit bias in judicial performance evaluations (JPEs) in the United States.
