Networks of Family Support and Social Policy Attitudes

Dissertation abstract
Explaining the formation of social policy attitudes has become an increasingly relevant task and garnered great attention from social scientists throughout the last decades. While many explanatory factors have been proposed at both micro- and macro-level, less attention has been paid to the role played by meso-level institutions, like the family. In an attempt to fill this research gap, the proposed dissertation employs secondary survey data to conduct a multilevel comparative analysis of how the family, and the network of dependencies and responsibilities embedded in it, influence individual social policy attitudes.
