  • Abstract:
    The aim of the PAWCER project is to conduct comparative research on attitudes towards the welfare state, climate change and energy in order to deepen the understanding of conflict, identity and memory.

    Project Description:
    The aim of the PAWCER project is to conduct comparative research on attitudes towards the welfare state, climate change and energy in order to deepen the understanding of conflict, identity and memory. Cross-country analyses of survey and contextual data explore similarities and differences between Europe and Russia, as well as converging or diverging trends in these areas. The research is based on the analysis of existing and forthcoming survey data. The data will be collected through the European Social Survey (ESS), a biennial academic survey. The project is funded by the initiative ERA.Net RUS Plus.
