Immigration, Redistribution, and Right-Wing Populism in Europe
Immigration, Redistribution, and Right-Wing Populism in Europe
Professor Charlotte Cavaillé
The presentation uses empirical evidence and case studies of redistribution and the electoral success of far-right populism in western Europe.
Charlotte Cavaillé is an assistant professor of public policy at the University of Michigan's Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. Her research has appeared in the Journal of Politics and the American Political Science Review. Cavaillé examines the dynamics of popular attitudes towards redistributive social policies at a time of rising inequality, high fiscal stress, and high levels of immigration.
She is currently turning her dissertation, which received the 2016 Mancur Olson Best Dissertation Award, into a book manuscript entitled Asking for More: Support for Redistribution in the Age of Inequality. Cavaillé received her PhD in government and social policy from Harvard University in 2014.
