In the Russian War against Ukraine the existing international legal order is challenged. At the heart of the challenge are struggles over the interpretation of the existing international legal order and what it should become.

Description

The "data revolution'' is changing the way we work with empirical data in the social sciences. Increasingly, traces of social and political interactions can be recorded digitally, leading to vast amounts of new data that become available for research. This poses new challenges for the way we organize and process research data. This course aims to provide participants with an introduction to different data management techniques. Departing from simple tools such as spreadsheets, we move on to more powerful data management software such as relational databases for tabular data.

WZB Talk by Thiemo Fetzer - Online Event
Description

This talk brings together seven years of work on understanding the political economic forces that have led to the UK's exit from the European Union in 2020. A common theme across populist surges across the West is the resonance that populist campaigns have with voters in so-called left-behind regions. The focus on cross-sectional patterns, however, often masks understanding the wider social-, economic and political developments that give rise for the necessary conditions of populist revolts to emerge.

Workshop - Online Event
Description

Political scientists often want to study members of hard-to-reach populations. A population is “hard-to-reach” or “hidden” when no sampling frame exists, and acknowledgment of membership is potentially threatening. With such a broad definition, we might include opposition groups (from the right or the left), sexual minorities, political brokers, or refugees, to say some. While many methods have been developed to approach and study hidden populations, they have seldom been applied in political science research.

Why do some donor governments pursue international development through recipient governments, while others bypass local authorities under similar recipient country and international economic conditions? Weaving together scholarship in political economy, public administration, and historical institutionalism, States, Markets, and Foreign Aid establishes connections between ideological orientations of donor governments and patterns of donor behaviour.

Description

The information that media provides to citizens fuels their attitudes and opinions towards social movements. Although scholars have extensively studied the ways in which media portrays protests, existing analyses have mostly focused on the verbal component of news and have overlooked a crucial element of the communication process: the visual material. Therefore, in this talk, I focus on visual frames of protests. First, I analyze the differences in the framing of the mood and environment that liberal and conservative outlets use when they talk about protests.

Current societal challenges such as the Covid-19 pandemic or climate change highlight the tension between individual freedom and collective good provision. Striking the right balance is particularly delicate for democratic governments whose authority hinges on citizen acceptance and legitimation. When and why do citizens accept far-reaching limitations of their individual rights for a greater societal good?

Description

The concept of trustworthiness can be understood to involve an informal social contract where principals authorize others to act on their behalf in the expectation that the agent will fulfill their responsibilities, despite conditions of risk and uncertainty. When evaluating the trustworthiness of political institutions, public judgments are expected to reflect the quality of government procedures, especially the principles of competency, impartiality and integrity.

This will be a one-day event, entirely virtual, focusing on R Markdown—a relatively new document type to analyse data and communicate results, in a reproducible and efficient manner (full description attached). By combining code, text, and resultsin a single document, R Markdown allows automation of otherwise manual—therefore tedious, costly to repeat, and error-prone—steps in writing research papers. Therefore, those interested in writing research-based papers, from essays to journal articles, are likely tobenefit from this course.

Description

Shifting media diets are increasingly viewed as a key driver of political polarization. In particular, prior research has focused on greater choice between partisan outlets and the rise of online news. This paper sheds light on a heretofore understudied yet equally salient development: the decline of local news. We argue that local news exits can induce polarization by increasing exposure to news about national politics, where partisan and ideological differences are more salient than at the local level.

We will then continue with spatial and geometric operations, i.e. spatial subsetting and joining, topological relations (e.g. which points lie in which areas?), centroids, distances, buffers, etc. I will also give some pointers on data sources and APIs for geo data, and a short overview on the numerous file formats used in this field.

We investigate how human cooperation evolves over two different dimensions of time. Subjects in a laboratory experiment play a high-frequency two-player Cournot-Tullock market game over hundreds of timed periods with and without information about the payoff function. By varying the length of periods across treatments, we generate a data set that is stable in "physical time" (seconds) but varies in "period time".

Many employees work in jobs that do not match their level of formal education. Status inconsistency theory (SIT) argues that such mismatches result in stress, dissatisfaction, political alienation, and social withdrawal. However, extant SIT scholarship does not fully appreciate the consequences of an identification problem due to the perfect collinearity among the effects of occupation, education, and their mismatch.

Description

Can extremism become contagious? Many papers have shown that social control of public actions can lead to sudden transitions from ‘extreme to mainstream’. What is not clear is whether social spillovers can also have first-order effects on private actions, like voting, where persuasion is key. We first build a measure of social interaction frequency using granular data from the 1918 Spanish Flu epidemic in Hamburg and information on household characteristics.

This lecture briefly characterizes the core of President Trump's approach to politics; places him into the broader historical context of American ethnonationalism and conservatism; and discuss the contemporary politics of white identity. In the fall of 2020 America finds itself in a profound constitutional crisis that resonates, disconcertingly, with the year 1932 and its different American and German outcomes. History does not repeat itself. But does it rhyme?
