Dr Shankha Basu’s research referenced in Psychology Today
Dr Shankha Basu’s research has been referenced in Psychology Today, in an article discussing the connection between global identity and a sense of personal responsibility towards the environment.
Dr Basu, Lecturer in Marketing, co-authored a paper titled ‘Global identity and preference for environmentally friendly products: The role of personal responsibility’, investigating the link between a person’s sense of global identity and their attitudes and behaviours towards the environment.
The research investigated whether the fact that someone sees themselves as a citizen of the world means they feel a stronger sense of personal responsibility towards the environment and are more inclined to behave in a sustainable way.
The article discusses the results of the studies which collectively show that global identity can lead to environmentally friendly behaviour.
Read about the studies in more detail in the full article in Psychology Today.
