Research interests

Sergi Pardos-Prado research's interests lie at the inersection between comparative politics, political behaviour, comparative political economy, migration studies, and quantitative research methods.

More specifically, he has two main lines of research. First, he is working on a number of comparative politics projects studying outcomes like voting behaviour, redistribution preferences, economic perceptions, and political participation among others. He is particularly interested in understanding how different macro-level configurations of party systems, ideological dimensions, labour market structures, and tax systems affect individual preferences and rational behaviour.

Second, he analyses the determinants of attitudes towards immigration across space and time, and the impact of immigration on redistribution preferences and the sustainability of the welfare state. His current work in this area focuses on variations in labour-market demand (rather than supply) shaping anti-immigrant attitudes, and on levels of tax progressivity moderating the impact of income on preferences. He also analyses the impact of immigration policy on foreigners' long-term economic and political integration, and the determinants of anti-immigrant populist voting as a function of redistribution and demographic pressures.

Pardos-Prado's work aims for high levels of both external and internal validity, observing cross-national patterns and identifying more local causal effects with experimental and quasi-experimental methodologies.
