Episode Info:

Listen in to Amina's conversation with Dr. Andreas Krafft as they discuss the power of hope, one of the constructs studied in the second round of IIIT's research for the Mapping the Terrain Study, part of its Advancing Education in Muslim Societies (AEMS) initiative. For the past ten years, Dr. Krafft has been working on a very exciting project called the Hope-Barometer, which is an annual survey of people's hopes and expectations for the future. This has included approximately 10,000 people in 14 different countries each year. Dr. Krafft reveals to Amina what inspired this initiative and what the most important findings have been. They also discuss the benefits of hope, its various sources, as well as its relationship to spirituality and religion. Dr. Andreas M. Krafft is a Research Associate and Lecturer at the Institute of Systemic Management and Public Governance, University of St. Gallen (Switzerland). He is also the head of the International Hope-Barometer Research Network and Co-President of swissfuture, the Swiss Society for Future Studies. Dr. Krafft is also a Board member of SWIPPA, the Swiss Association of Positive Psychology.
