Working Group on Attributions and Politics

 

The working group on Attributions and Politics is primarily concerned with conducting research on Attribution Theory and its application to political affairs.  Specifically, we examine the causes citizens identify for political problems, behavior, and events.  Our past research includes analysis of the perceived causes of mass shootings, homosexuality, obesity, global warming, intelligence, success, poverty, to name a few.  Causal attributions are important antecedents of policy preferences and function to reinforce and justify existing political dispositions.
