Since the selection of party leaders in a decentralized manner is a recent phenomenon in Canada, how is this new selection procedure different from an election campaign? This project is a study of a current case, the leadership selection of the Conservative Party of Canada. Using an analysis of media content, data from social networks, and semi-structured interviews, the project attempts to answer three questions. 1. Do leadership candidates adopt the same approach to a primary (strategies, messages, organizational structures) as in a general election? Do they campaign on the major pan-Canadian issues, or is there more segmentation? 2. Is the media interested only in the effects of the horserace, at the detriment of public policy issues? 3. If leadership selection was done in a more restrictive process, would we have the same number / type of candidate?

My dissertation will focus on race-based, age-based, and gender-based prejudice as they are the first three types of physical cues detected upon encountering an individual. They are referred to as “basic” or “primitive” categories in social psychology (Jackson, 2011). Moreover, among sociodemographic characteristics, race and gender are particularly visible and “politically salient” (Tolley & Goodyear-Grant, 2014). Understanding the influence of politicians’ appearance on the evaluation citizens make of them might bring us one step closer to solving the complex and persistent puzzle of several social groups’ under-representation in democracies.
