Seminar Abstract:

This paper extends the recent research on audience costs theory by examining the hitherto unexplored connection between national identity and audience costs. Based on the underlying reputational rationale of audience costs theory, we argue that national identity affects audience costs because it influences the degree to which citizens care about national reputation. We hypothesize that those who have a higher degree of national identity would punish the leader for empty promises more than those who have a low level of national identity. We embed an experiment in an online national survey in Japan to test the hypothesis, and report two major findings. First, as hypothesized, the greater one's national identity, the more s/he punishes the leader for making an empty threat. The second finding is that this general relationship hides an important difference between reasoned nationalism and blind nationalism. Reasoned nationalism leads to audience costs, but blind nationalism does not generate audience costs.
