Reactions and Moral Actions

(KARMA)

  • However, we know very little about what this knowledge does to us, as 'symbolic bystanders', and what we do with that knowledge.

  • To help fill this gap, this three-year Leverhulme Trust funded study was launched in 2010 by Principal Investigator Dr Bruna Seu (Birkbeck), Co-Investigator Dr ShaniOrgad (LSE) and Consultant Prof. Stan Cohen (LSE).
