(2):  Amsterdam - 15 november 2006 - Chris Aalberts - www.chrisaalberts.nl Sexy politics? (2) Young people’s perceptions on politics: Young people think that politics is important... And that it is boring Political disinterest is a bad thing For them, politics is not entertainment... It should be serious... And politicians should talk about their policies Conclusion :  Amsterdam - 15 november 2006 - Chris Aalberts - www.chrisaalberts.nl Conclusion Politics is too important to be sexy Young people say they are not influenced That seems to be true: there is no proof of any effects Still many people believe that effects occur They believe that others are influenced Popular culture is seen as useful for disinterested people More research…:  Amsterdam - 15 november 2006 - Chris Aalberts - www.chrisaalberts.nl More research… Audience research is needed: Who are the fans of political rap? Do they exist? How do they interpret those songs? Who are the friends of Jan Peter Balkenende? Why do they want to be friends with him? Who are the visitors on political debates on LowLands? Why are they there?
