Carolin Schütze

I am a postdoc at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business at Copenhagen Business School, and I am an affiliated research member of the ReNEW project.

I have a broad interest in welfare, organization and migration and ethnic and racial relations research. I focus on the individual level and investigate people’s attitudes, perceptions towards various issues but also their decision making. For example, I investigate migrants trust in governmental institutions through survey data

Current projects:

I am part of the ‘Exploration of hiring discrimination and possibilities for intervention through eye-tracking’ project that is funded by the Swedish research council https://mau.se/en/research/projects/exploration-of-hiring-discrimination-and-possibilities-for-intervention-through-eye-tracking/

Methodologically, I am specialized in quantitative data research with a specific focus on survey design but also survey experiments and analysis which I combine with qualitative data analysis, such as text analysis.
