The proposed project will explore and explain Lithuanian perceptions and public attitudes towards climate change within the broader European context. Cooperating closely with the ESRC-funded project “European Perceptions of Climate Change: a comparison between four European Countries” (coordinated by Cardiff University); this will be the first project to study the phenomenon in a theoretically-grounded, methodologically-rigorous and comparative manner, also taking into account Lithuania’s specific cultural and historical background. Empirically, its central components are: a) survey-based public opinion research, b) focus groups with relevant stakeholders from politics and civil society, c) analysis of relevant media coverage, d) analysis of the socio-political context and e) a comparative analysis of the Lithuanian case within other European countries and historical analysis of Lithuanian case.
