Decision making in democratic regimes of redistribution
With the DFG sub-project FOR2104 n B2 we develop instruments to measure the legitimacy of democratically obtained decisions about redistribution. Following the sub-projects work the dissertation will examine further reaching and more specialized characteristics of redistributive behaviour in democratic processes of redistribution. The overall project focuses on individual determinants of democratic decision making and aims to extend the social science toolkit in order to better understand politically relevant processes. The dissertation therefore extends the focus on public decision making beyond the exploration of voting.
