Workshop on Perceptions and Policy Preferences – 7 May 2021

For this interdisciplinary workshop, we invite empirical contributions (full papers preferred) that examine how perceptions of socio-economic factors shape redistributive or other policy attitudes, preferably relying on longitudinal and/or experimental studies. Junior scholars are encouraged to apply and might also present research designs or ideas for survey experiments in a designated session. Topics may include – but are not limited to – (mis-)perceptions of inequality, migration, labor markets, education, and their consequences for policy preferences or party support/voting behavior.
