“When Citizens Peek Behind the Bureaucratic Veil: An Experiment in Shaping Public Opinion”
In this paper, we plan to conduct a novel experiment to test whether Americans form their opinions on executive agency decisions based on whether those decisions are framed as emerging from either technocratic or democratic deliberative processes. This experiment will allow us to uncover the type of reasoning that appeals most to the public—and therefore points toward better communication strategies for agencies to improve their reputation and citizen buy-in.
