Research interests

Generally, Professor Neundorf's research applies advanced statistical methods to substantially important research questions with the aim of testing and refining theories of political socialization, political attitudes, and electoral choice. Thereby, she is mainly interested in how individuals form and retain these attitudes and identities over time and across different political systems. Herresearch can be grouped into three broad themes: 

  • AUTHORITARIAN LEGACIES and democratic transitioning: The legacy of authoritarian regimes on democratic attitudes. 

  • POLITICAL SOCIALIZATIONThe origins of political attitudes: Socialization, age, and generations.

  • DYNAMICS OF ATTITUDESStability and dynamics of political attitudes using household panel studies.
