Citizens' reactions to the debt crisis
A government debt crisis is not a rare phenomenon. However, the perception that citizens have of excessive government borrowing differs from country to country. In some, citizens demonstrate their concern accepting measures that will avoid the crisis while in others not. At the same time, there are no available related studies. The EU-funded MIDEBT project intends to achieve two consecutive aims. It will perform the first inclusive analysis of individual reactions to debt reduction projects before a crisis. It will explain which social support such policies enjoy, its motivations and its stability. Subsequently, it will use the results to understand which groups are in favour of such policies, explaining their interaction with institutions and influence on policymaking.
