Political Awareness

The political awareness is a broad term in political science literature. Delli Carpini and Keeter (1996) define political knowledge as ‘‘the range of factual information about politics that is stored in long-term memory’’. According to them, appropriate levels of political knowledge are thought to be important to allowing individuals and groups to effectively participate in politics, represent their own needs before the system, and develop attitudes that are based on more than emotion.

The importance of understanding how our systems of government function, both in terms of internal and foreign affairs, is crucial to each and every citizen of this country, particularly to our youth. Many of us pay no attention to politics, simply because we feel that it does not affect us. This could not be further from the truth, regardless of any individual's position in our society. College students have recently felt the effects of an increase in tuition prices all across the country, which occurred due to our nation's debt ceiling crisis, in an attempt for the Congressmen to earn more finances while keeping their salaries from decreasing. However, some surveys demonstrate that multiple individuals could not give an answer as to why prices were going up.

This is just a small example of the problems that political ignorance causes, and it emphasizes the importance of spreading the awareness of political corruption and hidden agendas.

GERA makes it a priority to work toward raising political awareness at the national level and especially among the youth through programs, campaigns and various events.
