Redistributive Politics: Comparative and Experimental Approaches

Mandag, 30 april, 2018 - 09:00 to 17:30

The CBS Inequality Platform invites you to the upcoming workshop on "Redistributive Politics: Comparative and Experimental Approaches", to be held at CBS on 30 April 2018. The aim of this workshop is to take stock of current research, challenges and future directions of research on redistributive policies and politics. In the two sessions, we will discuss some cutting-edge research on redistributive preferences and the politics of domestic and transnational redistribution. The presented papers rely on a variety of methodological approaches that range from the classical comparative method to the most recent advances of experimental research.
