Two New Researchers in the Team

We are proud to announce that the FACE team has grown with two additional members, Miroslav Nemčok and Kimmo Makkonen who will both start working with the data after the survey has been closed in October. Miroslav Nemčok will focus on the themes of trust and democracy satisfaction in the survey data; Kimmo Makkonen will work on parliamentary discussions regarding expat Finns’ rights as well as the text material produced through the survey open questions.
