The Role of Social Identity on Preferences for Redistribution

Project description

Social identity and the shaping of economic views on economic redistribution

Social identity refers to how we understand ourselves as members of certain groups. It influences intergroup behaviour and is considered a basic factor of the endogeneity of economic preferences. But the formation of attitudes towards redistribution, social preferences and views towards redistributive institutions are fundamental concepts that must be explained. The EU-funded SOCIENTITY_PR project will conduct a high-quality study to understand the impact of social identity, as well as of different existing systems and the heterogeneity of parameters, for preferences toward redistribution. Innovative parametric and non-parametric techniques and new econometric techniques will be applied as SOCIENTITY_PR seeks to identify social factors influencing distribution and the variables classifying those preferences under different schemes like beliefs and individual or social heterogeneity.
