Abstract: This contribution discusses challenges of demonstrating what is “absent” in so-called evidence-based policy making. In particular, it investigates the problems of creating evidence of an absence in relation to two diverse policy fields: environmental risk management and law enforcement. Taking birding as an instance of environmental documentation, images of soon-missing species seem to preserve their presence. While graphics may be used to document dwindling numbers, it remains a challenge how to envision (and communicate a vision of) a world without them, including any ripple effects of their loss. In the field of law enforcement policy, we explore the problem of documenting the low risks represented by cultural and racial “others” in “our” midst as opposed to the apparent ease with which images of crimes and criminals foster suspicion and support discriminatory policies. In our analysis we mainly engage with “public images”, i.e. graphics, pictures, posters etc. mobilized in support of policy making.

Abstract: Can jurors draw appropriate conclusions from negative forensic evidence, such as the failure to find gunshot residue (GSR) on an alleged shooter? Experiment 1 found that undergraduates (N=572) undervalue negative GSR evidence, particularly when a negative result is merely probable rather than certain if a gun was fired. Experiment 2 presented the same materials to members of the jury pool at a county courthouse (N=164), and found the same pattern of results for jurors who were college graduates but a different (and even less appropriate) pattern for non-college graduates. Experiment 3, which also involved jury pool members (N=420), found similar results across a broader range of stimulus conditions. Legal and psychological implications will be discussed.

Abstract: Agency in liberal political thought begins in the division between the two halves of Hobbes?s Leviathan. This division is reflected in Locke?s moral psychology. Political agency requires reason and motive, and motive requires narratives.
