How Do Politicians Learn? A Research Workshop

Wed, May 17, 2017, 8:30 am to 6:00 pm
By invitation only
This research workshop questions the extent to which politicians are informed, how they obtain information, and – importantly – how they process it. In particular, it will explore three important and interrelated questions: - How well informed about voters’ policy preferences are politicians in reality? - What are the sources of their information? - What explains bias in their estimations of citizens’ policy preferences?
