Conspiracy Theories in France: Interim report

Counterpoint published its interim report on beliefs in conspiracy theories in France, as part of the project ”Rival political Narratives” with the Hungarian-based political consultancy Political Capital. Counterpoint’s focus countries for this project are France and Norway. The project is generously supported by the Open Society Foundations.

As part of this project, Counterpoint is interested in exploring methods of ‘short-circuiting’ conspiracy theories that contribute to xenophobic populist forces. In order to do this, it is important to have a clear idea of the profile of those who believe in conspiracy theories. Since so little empirical work of this type had been done on the subject, Counterpoint decided, with the help of the research centre Cevipof, to investigate the demographics and attitudes of conspiracy theory believers in France.

This publication is the result of Counterpoint’s study. Written by Counterpoint associate Joel Gombin, it reveals the central findings from their analysis and draws some key conclusions. For the next stages of the project, Counterpoint will use this research for their advocacy work to determine how conspiracy theories can be ‘short-circuited’ in practice.
