Self-Efficacy as a Driver of Civic Participation in Uganda

Abstract

We find that exposure to a self-efficacy intervention can motivate informationseeking action for environmental causes. Self-efficacy has been shown to be a powerful driver of behavior in a variety of contexts but there has been limited investigation into how self-efficacy is best induced in experimental settings. This study has two main aims. First it seeks to establish if interventions designed to increase self-efficacy can have an impact on outcomes related to civic participation, and second, it seeks to evaluate whether two selected methods of inducing self-efficacy result in different outcomes.
