Political Knowledge 


Political knowledge is considered an essential component of citizenship. On one side, it refers to the amount of data on the political situation, and, on the other hand, the ability that the citizen have to interrelate such data. For several authors, if citizens have significant levels of political knowledge, their decisions will have higher doses of responsibility, fairness and inclusion. At the same time, it is argued that an informed society performs a more efficient control task of government authorities, than when it is carried out by societies with lower levels of political knowledge (Langton y Jennings, 1968; Fraile, Ferrer y Martín, 2007).
