The Centre for the Study of Democratic citizenship presents a methods workshop by:
Prof Jane Green (University of Oxford)
Designing Electoral Surveys
Where and When: Thursday, February 6, 2020, from 2pm to 4pm. Room C-4019, Lionel Groulx Building, Université de Montréal.
About Prof. Jane Green: Jane Green is the incoming Director of the Gwilym Gibbon Centre for Public Policy which conducts research into public policy issues, and a Co-Director of the British Election Study – the longest running social survey in the UK, founded by Sir David Butler at Nuffield College. Her research is primarily concerned with assessing the relationship between policy and performance and political attitudes and vote choice. One of the main contributions is showing how political actors and mass publics respond to external events and shocks. Her co-authored book, with Will Jennings (‘The Politics of Competence: Parties, Public Opinion and Voters’, CUP, 2017) argues that shocks cause substantial changes to party policy reputations, voters generalise competence assessments across the policy agenda, and governments suffer costs of ruling due to predictable over-time dynamics in the attribution of blame. Jane Green’s new co-authored book with the British Election Study team (‘Electoral Shocks: Understanding the Volatile Voter in a Turbulent World’, OUP), explains how the British party system is destabilizing due to the combination of electoral shocks and over time increases in underlying electoral volatility.
