The Dynamics of Unemployment, Risk, and Political Predispositions


Nadja Wehl | University of Konstanz

Labour market inequalities are known to be related to individuals’ policy preferences, but their impact on political predispositions is rarely analysed. Nadja will present research on whether labour market inequalities mostly reflect relicts from socio-economic inequalities from childhood to early adulthood, or are the result of permanent reactions to economic risk and shocks, as well as whether pre-existing predispositions condition the effects of economic shocks.
