Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers


This symposium will serve as a follow-up session to the other ICCS-related symposium, 'What Can We Learn from the International Civic and Citizenship Study (ICCS)?' This symposium will move from an overview of the ICCS to focus on analysing data from the Asian Regional Module of the ICCS survey. The data are collected from five Eastern and South Eastern societies which have participated in ICCS, namely, Hong Kong, Indonesia South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand. Drawing on an analysis of data from the Main Survey and the Asian Regional Module of the International Civic and Citizenship Study (ICCS) we shall discuss the perception of students from these societies on different perspectives, including political trust, religion and citizenship. The first paper shows how multi-level statistical analyses can reveal the role of schools in building political trust among students in five Asian societies.
