This workshop seeks to answer these questions by bringing together researchers from different sub-disciplines in comparative political economy, political sociology, economic sociology and party politics. The line-up consists of a mix of early and mid-career as well as senior scholars who are conducting cutting-edge research in the field of inequality and political behaviour.
As a reference for studies of Western Europe and the US we treat Poland which after 2015 has been regarded as one of the primary cases of democratic backsliding which went along with a sudden turn in its post-transition political economy. While focusing on specific cases, we intend to highlight the use of panel datasets in studying social, economic and political inequalities. In our workshop we will feature papers using German Socio-Economic Panel Study, Understanding Society: UK Household Longitudinal Study, National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979: Children and Young Adults (US), The Polish Panel Survey (POLPAN), and Longitudinal Internet Studies for the Social sciences (LISS) Data.
