Abstract

All papers in this panel deal with attitude change (or lack thereof). One paper investigates whether public opinion in former East and West Germany has converged or not since reunification of the two countries in 1990. One paper studies the development of attitudes towards immigration in the Nordic countries over a decade and links it to political conditions among each country. One paper asks whether the rally-around-the-flag effect (a sudden increase of support for a government in response to a crisis) also takes place in countries that are not directly involved in the crisis but might be affected by it. One paper examines the extent to which changes in the local socioeconomic environment of East German districts affects political attitudes. One paper presents a novel method and dataset to capture ideological change (both economic and social) across Europe overs the last three decades.
