Solidarity and deservingness
In modern societies there is a system of institutionalized solidarity, namely the welfare state. This institution defines the conditions under which individuals may benefit from social solidarity. In practice, a more or less strict set of explicit and implicit rules govern the redistribution of resources and the access to public policies, including to social benefits, health coverage, education, or labor market access, among others.
This project focuses on understanding popular attitudes towards the redistribution of resources and the access to different policies in multiethnic societies. In particular, it aims at understanding better, which individual characteristics (e.g. age, gender, nationality) and contexts conditions (e.g. countries, health crises) influence the perception of who deserves to be supported and who does not.
