Tittel

The 22 July terrorist attacks in Norway: impact on public attitudes towards counterterrorist authorities

Sammendrag

Did the terrorist attacks in Norway affect citizens’ attitudes to security-related institutions and policies? To answer this question this study pools two cross-sectional surveys, collected shortly before and after the 2011 terrorist attacks, to determine the attacks’ effects on people's attitudes. One important finding is that general support for the institutions responsible for security increased slightly, whereas specific support for government agencies capability to prevent and cope with crises decreased markedly. A second important finding concerns the potential for politicisation of crises: On issues of security, the distance between right-wing voters and other party voters increased after the attack. Irrespective of party attachment, Norwegians have become less satisfied with governmental policies on security-related issues, but dissatisfaction has increased significantly more among right-wing than among left-wing voters. Thus, even in a country where politicians responded to the crisis with an appeal to togetherness and common values, citizens’ attitudes on security policies were politicised.
