MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop

The workshop offers a fresh look at the relationship between public institutions, public policies, and political behaviour. We aim to address contemporary challenges and innovative perspectives in this field, bringing together a diverse range of expertise from the social sciences. We examine the state's role in fostering unity or discord among social groups, transforming political conflict dynamics, and influencing political preference shifts among citizens.

Our workshop touches on a range of substantive issues from institutional corruption over changing welfare states through social housing and solar energy to migration and integration policy. We will discuss research employing various methodological approaches, from causal inference to more traditional empirical analysis.

An important aim for the participants is to learn from each other about the mechanisms through which public institutions and policies act as drivers of political attitudes and the approaches by which these effects can be studied.
